Dysfunctional (literary) Families

Last week, Flavorwire published a list of 5 Literary Families More Dysfunctional Than Yours. I love the list and agree with their choices, especially the Bundren family from William Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying". But one family jumped to mind immediately and wasn't one of Flavorwire's 5: The Finch family from "Running With Scissors".

The real Finch family is the Turcotte family, who had a few problems with "Scissors". To read more about that, check out a Vanity Fair article by CLICKING HERE.

Technically, Augusten Burroughs' "Running With Scissors" is a memoir, so I like thinking the Finch family is mostly real. If you haven't read "Running With Scissors" or seen the movie, I suggest you do both.
