Welcome to the official author page for Family and Other Catastrophes!
One of NY Post’s “Must-Read Books of the Week”
“Debut author Borowitz comes on strong in this feisty, laugh-out-loud comedy ….The laughs just keep coming. VERDICT Hats off to Borowitz for bringing to light the comedy of what happens before “I do.” An excellent read for anyone who has been part of a wedding.”- Library Journal
“Humor and heart mix in Borowitz’s debut novel, which will resonate with anyone who loves their family despite said family’s best efforts.”- Kirkus
“A laugh-out-loud funny debut that portrays a very real depth of emotion about the complex web that is family, set against one of life’s most stressful events: a wedding. Borowitz treats her characters with the kind of compassion and heart that will have you cheering for them—despite their flaws—until the very last page. A must read!” —Kristy Woodson Harvey, bestselling author of Slightly South of Simple
“Family and Other Catastrophes is the perfect book for anyone with a calamity of a family who wants to laugh along in knowing hilarity. Alexandra Borowitz has written characters who we hate to love but yet we do (love them) because we know these people intimately, they are our own family.”—Ann Garvin, USA TODAY bestselling author of I Like You Just Fine When You’re Not Around
“Family and Other Catastrophes is, hands down, one of the funniest novels I’ve read this year. The members of the Glass clan are as hilarious as they are cringe-worthy, and Alexandra Borowitz’s rendering of family dysfunction is charming, insightful, and wickedly smart. Honestly, the only real catastrophe here is that this wonderful book had to end.”—Grant Ginder, author of The People We Hate at the Wedding
