'A globe-trotting, whirlwind, tragi-comic family saga ... A joy' ANDREW SEAN GREER.



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.

PRAISE FOR FAMILY TRUST:

'Silky in satire, the writing is biting, bristling, intelligent' Irish Times.

'A brilliant mashup of Crazy Rich Asians and Arrested Development ... The best kind of family drama' Cristina Alger, author of The Banker's Wife.

'Deftly weaves together rich family drama, biting corporate satire and deeply felt immigrant story ... A sharp, spirited and wholly original take on the American Dream' Jillian Medoff.

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

Genre: General Fiction

Praise for this book

"FAMILY TRUST reads like a brilliant mashup of The Nest and Crazy Rich Asians (with a soupçon of Arrested Development for good measure). It’s dark and funny and entertaining and thoughtful all at once. The best kind of family drama. I loved every page." - Cristina Alger

"A globe-trotting, whirlwind, tragi-comic family saga that wrings tears from absurdity and laughter from loss. A joy to read from start to finish." - Andrew Sean Greer
