Product description

Product Description

Now a major SBS television series!

Meet the Law family – eccentric, endearing and hard to resist. Your guide: Benjamin, the third of five children and a born humorist. Join him as he tries to answer some puzzling questions: Why won’t his Chinese dad wear made-in-China underpants? Why was most of his extended family deported in the 1980s? Will his childhood dreams of Home and Away stardom come to nothing? What are his chances of finding love?

Hilarious and moving, The Family Law is a linked series of tales from a beloved Australian writer.

‘A vivid, gorgeously garish, Technicolour portrait of a family. It’s impossible not to let oneself go along for the ride and emerge at the book’s end enlightened, touched, thrilling with laughter.’ —Marieke Hardy

‘Benjamin Law manages to be scatagogical, hilarious and heartbreaking all at the same time. Every sentence fizzes like an exploding fireball of energy.’ —Alice Pung

‘Law is a writer of great wit and warmth who combines apparently artless and effortless comedian’s patter with a high level of technical skill.’ —Sydney Morning Herald

‘An addictive read.’ —Courier-Mail

‘Very funny...you may find yourself at times almost barking with laughter’ —the Monthly

‘An engaging read.’ —West Weekend Magazine, West Australian

‘Wonderful. Everyone should run to their nearest bookshop and buy a copy.’ —Defamer

‘Simultaneously weird and instantly recognisable, the Laws are an Australian family it’s well worth getting to know’ —the Enthusiast

‘Enjoyable, easy reading ... Law is a considerable talent with a long future ahead of him.’ —Literary Minded

‘The eccentric, clever and beautifully resonant The Family Law. It’s sharply written, brilliantly observed and infused with an authenticity that makes it compelling.’ —Saturday Age

Benjamin Law is the author of The Family Law and Gaysia, and a frequent contributor to the Monthly, frankie and Good Weekend. Benjamin writes for publications, businesses and agencies worldwide, and co-wrote the TV adaptation of The Family Law for SBS and Matchbox Pictures.

Many, many laughs to be had. Also the right balance of sentimentality.

I really enjoyed this book from Benjamin Law. The book is full of quirky short-essays (of sorts) about growing up Asian in Australia - but it's much more than this. Funny, insightful, thought-provoking. A great read!

Great read, Ben brings his family dynamics to life for us. Great reflection of multi cultural Australia. Can't wait to read more.
