On the eve of the next Space Shuttle mission, a divided family comes together...Warm, witty and wise, `All Families Are Psychotic' is Coupland at the very top of his form. In a cheap motel an hour from Cape Canaveral, Janet Drummond takes her medication, and does a rapid tally of the whereabouts of her children.
Wade has spent the night in jail; suicidal Bryan is due to arrive at any moment with his vowel-free girlfriend, Shw; and then there is Sarah, `a bolt of lightning frozen in midflash' - here in Orlando to be the star of Friday's shuttle mission.
With Janet's ex-husband and his trophy wife also in town, Janet spends a moment contemplating her family, and where it all went wrong. Or did it?
