Wilson takes his quirky world-view into new territory in his third book, featuring two deeply engaging characters – teenager Izzy Poole, smart, pregnant, and alone but by no means without resources, and the iconoclastic Preston Grind, brilliant, ambitious, and recovering from a devastating personal tragedy. Izzy and her baby join “The Infinite Family,” Dr. Grind’s grand experiment with communal parenting as a means of raising super-intelligent, ethical, and compassionate children. Things don’t go exactly as planned, but it’s a heck of a ride; Izzy is a treasure, and the issues raised here-related to family, marriage, child development, and human subject research- will keep you thinking for a while!
