Book Overview


The most exciting debut of the summer

‘I absolutely adored it. It is the funniest rom-com I’ve read in a very long time … Andrea stole my heart … I cannot wait to get my hands on whatever Lauren Ho writes next’
Beth O’Leary, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Flatshare

Like all good Chinese children, Andrea Tang is doing her best to fulfil all her mother’s plans for her life: she’s on track to become partner at a top law firm in Singapore, she has a beautiful apartment in the right postcode and a perfect boyfriend who is practically made of husband material.

Except that those plans are unravelling fast: there’s an unfairly attractive new lawyer out to steal her promotion, she has credit-card debt up to her eyeballs, her perfect boyfriend is now her perfect ex-boyfriend and the last single cousin in her family just got engaged, leaving her exposed to romantic meddling on all sides…

For fans of Crazy Rich Asians and Bridget Jones’s Diary comes a hilarious story of love, friendship and the most intrusive people in the world: family.

‘Andrea Tang is wise, witty, flawed and perfectly written. I adored her story, and felt so seen by it. If you loved Crazy Rich Asians you’ll gobble this up!’ Laura Jane Williams, bestselling author of Our Stop

Witty, vibrant and full of characters I’d love to go for drinks with. As a reader who loved Bridget Jones back in the day, I’d say that Andrea is the millennial BridgetLouise Hare, author of This Lovely City

About the author


Lauren Ho is a reformed legal counsel who writes funny stories. Hailing from Malaysia, she lived in the United Kingdom, France and Luxembourg before moving with her family to Singapore, where she is ostensibly working on her next novel. Last Tang Standing is not based on her mother. At all. Seriously.
