narcissists, pathological liars and other challenging characters we encounter in our every day lives Instead, what we have are ordinary people dealing with difficult and occasionally bizarre situations in less than ideal ways Wright s characters are, in this way, not unlike our flawed selves, as viewed through a kaleidoscope.We see a collection of characters who range from quirky to dysfunctional, struggling either to find meaning in friendship and intimate connection, or avoiding it altogether In The Unofficial Calculation Museum, George and Laurel are uniquely dysfunctional siblings who struggle to protect their precious collection of calculators as a tornado bears down on them George is devoted to the calculators most of which he stole while Laurel, a gambling addict, is disdainful of George s efforts Their inherent weirdness is seen through the lens of a young couple, who are initially delighted by the collection but become increasingly wary as they witness the siblings odd relationship in the face of an impending natural disaster.Read here flag 2 likesLike see review Oct 14, 2018 Aaron Kreuter rated it it was amazing I loved this book Well written,
