"Recent business school graduate Penny Baker has rebelled against her family her whole life--by being the conventional one. Her mother Amalia was a member of a South American tribe called the Kogi; her much older father Norm long ago attained cult-like deity status among a certain cohort of aging hippies while operating a psychedelic 'healing centre.' And she's never felt particularly close to her much older half-brothers from Norm's previous marriage--one wickedly charming and obscenely rich (but mostly just wicked), one a photographer on a distant tropical island. But all that changes when her father dies, and Penny inherits his childhood home in New Jersey"

I just recently discovered Ned Zink and I'm glad I did!

Humorous and witty, Nell Zink takes us for a ride on the train of identity seekers. After the ex hippy patriarch of the Baker family dies, Penny, the daughter, gives living at the Nicotine a try. It's a community of squatters who vie for smokers. Plus, it's belongs to her deceased father. Never a dull moment. The satire, the clever and unmistakable inventiveness of the writing makes for a fun and oddly satisfying book.
