The joyfully freewheeling, funny and profound new novel from ?one of the most inventive, adventurous and accomplished fiction writers in the US today' (Lionel Shriver)

Welcome to America. On the east coast, homes are being swallowed by the ocean; on the west coast, California is engulfed with wildfire.

But for one family, the impending environmental disaster is the least of their worries. Party girl Cat just impulse-purchased a snake; her pious brother Cooper is wrestling with a tic bite; and their mom Ottilie has resorted to cooking with crickets. Everyone is drinking too much - and the bugs seems to be disappearing. It seems as if it's anything but blue skies ahead...

A delightfully dark comedy of manners about family life at the end of the world, Blue Skies is a masterful new adventure from one of the America's great comic writers.

'Always enjoyable, virtually incapable of dullness or slack sentences ... His stories reveal truths about modern life while still feeling beautifully invented' - NEW YORK TIMES

'A virtuoso craftsman' - ANNIE PROULX

'Boyle is a writer who chooses a large canvas and fills it to the edges' - BARBARA KINGSOLVER
