內容簡介


《華盛頓郵報》《Elle.com》《Buzzfeed 》《娛樂週刊》《環球郵報》《哈潑時尚》一致評選為秋季最值得期待的作品
「讀起來像《搶救安樂窩》和《瘋狂亞洲富豪》的混搭版(又帶有一些些的《發展受阻》風格)。─《銀行家的妻子》作者Cristina Alger

Stanley Huang是一位父親、丈夫、前夫,擁有不可預期的品味和脾氣,瘋狂熱愛全套假期,喜愛購買奢侈品時亂殺價,近期被診斷出有胰臟癌。

Stanley的家族:兒子Fred,一天到晚幻想自己會賺大錢;女兒Kate有一個任性的上司、容易心煩意亂的丈夫和兩個小孩;前妻Linda雖然對Stanley很熟悉,卻又經常質疑他華而不實;而現任妻子Mary總是無怨無悔的照顧Stanley。

多年來,Stanley一直吹噓自己有不少財產,但越接近Stanley的死亡,Huang一家人都開始質疑所謂的財產到底還剩多少。這是一個關於文化期望、職業抱負和那些曾經最熟悉我們的家人的動人故事,完整刻劃出現代美國家庭生活的苦難與甜蜜。

The BuzzFeed Book Club pick.

'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.

PRAISE FOR FAMILY TRUST:
'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.
