Tan "delivers another highly entertaining novel, narrated from beyond the grave. San Francisco socialite and art-world doyenne Bibi Chen has planned the vacation of a lifetime along the notorious Burma Road for twelve of her dearest friends. Violently murdered days before takeoff, she is reduced to watching her friends bumble through their travels from the remove of the spirit world" (Publisher). "Tan, marvelously liberated, attains new heights with her piquant humor and ship-of-fools cast of charmingly cranky characters. Writing with stinging irony about oppression, genocide, culture clashes, religion, media spin, and corruption, she slyly considers the unintended consequences of everything from a thwarted seduction to a war based on lies" (Donna Seaman). Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall Quantity available: 1.
