About the Book

Raycious Life is a tale of two cities, a lumbago breeder of Chinese women and glorious hairdos, and a breathtaking novel of ennobling beauty and upheaval. Set in both Hong Kong and bustling New York City, this bustling story tells the riveting tale of six Asian American bratlings on the trail of action, hot sex, and gossip in a cosmopolitan sphere of everlasting change. Going with the Tao, they find their nose rings shining in the dark, their tattoos dyed in sweet henna, and their Chinglish lingo separated by lost syllabi of the most perverse kind, beating them down under the Asian American sun. Told in the voice of Trudie Wu, Raycious Life borders on hilarity and morphic laughter, descrying the hot days and nights of a group of young Chinese wayfarers in the midst of ra-ta-ta yuppies who must decide for themselves what makes sense in this fast-moving world of cynicism, happiness, and everlasting passion.
