'A globe-trotting, whirlwind, tragi-comic family saga ... A joy to read from start to finish' ANDREW SEAN GREER, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Less .

Meet Stanley Huang : Father, husband, ex-husband, man of unpredictable temper, aficionado of bargain luxury goods. He's just been diagnosed with cancer, and his family are dealing with the fall-out.

Meet Stanley's family : Son Fred, a banker who never has enough money; daughter Kate, juggling a difficult boss and her two small children; ex-wife Linda, suspicious of Stanley's grand gestures; and second wife Mary, giver of foot rubs and ego massages.

Meet Stanley's fortune : As the Huangs come to terms with Stanley's approaching death, they are starting to fear that there's a lot less in the pot than they thought. And that's a problem when you're living in one of the wealthiest parts of California...

Spanning themes of culture, ambition, love and - most of all - family, this sparkling debut is a sharp, funny and loving portrait of modern Asian-American life.

'A wicked and witty send up of Asian-American Silicon Valley elite, a delightful debut that Jane Austen would be proud of' MICAH PERKS.
