Michael Frank is the author of The Mighty Franks: A Memoir - a captivating look into the lives of a family so incredibly intertwined that it tests the boundaries of family life. Brother and sister married sister and brother, being Michael's parents, and aunt and uncle. And if that wasn't complicated enough, his two grandmothers shared an apartment together just minutes away. Central to the book is the extraordinary figure of Harriet Frank Jr, or Auntie Hankie - a childless screenwriter who develops a deep devotion to her nephew, Michael Frank.
