The Lums are cursed. Their deaths come randomly, strangly, and often, be it by tainted cheeseburger or speeding ice cream truck. The most recent victim is Louis Lum’s mother at the hands of a medical student asleep at the wheel. Now Louis, a fact checker at a hot rod magazine in his early twenties, must move back home with his gangsta-rap-obsessed father, Sonny, to prevent him from seeking revenge. But soon Louis’s concern shifts to his uncle Bo, who has disappeared in Hong Kong. After the annual family meeting at Grandma Esther’s house, Louis decides to leave his father and go to Hong Kong to find Bo, his grandmother’s favorite son. As Louis’s search progresses, the tragicomic story of three generations of Lums in America is revealed. A novel about the unexpected ways love and myth work to both sustain and threaten family ties, “A Long Stay in a Distant Land” introduces a wry and original new voice in American fiction.
