Book Review: The Family Law by Benjamin Law - Reviewed by Shelleyrae (16 Jun 2011)
The Family Law is an amusing collection of anecdotes by Benjamin Law sharing the joys, traumas and candid moments of growing up in his eccentric Chinese Australian family in suburban Queensland. There is a distinct Aussie flavour to Law’s reminiscences which are easy to relate to. Law examines his life with a wry sense of humour and an eye for the quirky differences of his family and their experiences. I laughed out loud more than once, particularly with his mother’s blunt, if crude, statements. I also appreciated the candour with which Benjamin shares his relationship. This lighthearted memoir is a quick, fun read.
Book Review: The Family Law by Benjamin Law - Reviewed by Boomer (22 Jul 2010)
Within the first two pages of The Family Law I was laughing out loud and reading passages out to explain my non-standard reading behaviour. This was repeated many, many times over the course of Ben Law’s debut as I made my way through his series of vignettes of life as one of the Laws. For those not familiar with Law’s work, he’s a freelance writer for many magazines—possibly best known for his work in Frankie. He grew up as one of five children raised on the Sunshine Coast where his parents settled after emigrating from Hong Kong. He’s also gay. These three factors—big family, immigrant background, homosexuality—are the common threads that run through his stories. They could make for a pofaced book, but this title is anything but. It’s a rollicking series of insights into the life of a pretty awesome family. The Family Law is unflinchingly graphic and Law’s language runs pretty blue at times, so this won’t be for your more easily offended customers. However, for those who love their writing fresh, fun and packed with laughs, it’s perfect.
