From the back cover: "With their grand patriarch ailing, a family gets together to wish him a happy birthday. Beneath this happy surface, however, greed, vanity, lust, and jealousy erupt to shatter the rosy Norman Rockwell portrait of family life. At the top of his form, graphic pioneer Will Eisner delivers a haunting portrayal of a deeply flawed--and refreshingly real--cast of relatives selfishly vying for inheritance and status. A Family Matter questions the ties that bind us together and offers no easy answers.
