Dial A for Aunties
Slapstick. Don’t let summer pass you by without reading a funny book for which you don’t need to engage many parts of your brain. One to consider is Jesse Q. Sutanto’s novel titled, Dial A for Aunties. After protagonist Meddelin Chan gets herself in a pickle, her mother gathers her sisters to get Meddie out of her predicament. The slapstick hijinks that follow provide great humor, and by the time Sutanto turns from comedy to romance, most readers are prepared to smile toward a happy ending for all. I read this novel in one sultry afternoon outdoors, and I felt the heat and humidity drift away as I relaxed with the story.
