When the matriarch of the least successful Jewish family in America gets tired of their misfortune, she consults mystical texts for help.

Determined that their next grandchild will be a genius who changes their fortunes, and convinced that no one in her clan is smart enough to raise a genius by themselves, she decides that the child will be passed from household to household to gain their collective wisdom.

A picaresque romp set in 1950's Brooklyn, Cousins' Club is a delightful escape filled with unusual events, radical rogues, cockeyed intellectuals and pie-eyed strivers.
