Told in the vein of a Wes Anderson film, Ark follows three generations of a seemingly wealthy but crumbling New York family on their way from the penthouse to the outhouse. Filled with an absurdly captivating cast of characters who are often despicable yet entirely compelling, Tepper’s sophomore novel is a wry and darkly humorous take on family dynamics.
Julian Tepper
Rebecca Arkin is an attorney in Manhattan. She’s grounded, driven, and successful. When a legal battle breaks out for control of the company, it falls to Rebecca to keep her family from collapsing, all while trying desperately to extricate herself from their grasp. Unfortunately, she’s also the granddaughter of Ben Arkin, an artist who has never sold a piece, and the daughter of Oliver Arkin, who — along with his sisters — runs a record company that has never had a hit.
