Hilarious debut novel by Long Wong Charlie is now available in e-book format on Amazon.
PARIS, May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The brand new e-book "All Good Dragons Have Wonton for Breakfast," by Long Wong Charlie, is now available on both Amazon and Kobo.
In his first novel, the author relates the feel-good story of an Asian-American thrillseeker who is confronted with the mysterious "dragon curse." It is a powerful force, but the vertically-challenged shoe-salesman does not give in to it despite the state's slogan "everything that's bigger is better" ringing true even today. During a two-week span, this exciting novel, stripped of the Asian cliche, will squeeze the protagonist through a fast-paced sequence of slippery mishaps as a plan is devised to do away with this curse. Binh will follow his mission by focusing on three unexpected turn-of-events that will shake his decision-making skills to the core. In a town where 'real' people come without faces, he will begin to shed the immigrant label for a more personal kind and one infinitely more… exciting…
The author remains modest, "I felt compelled to define the immigrant, and the best way to do this, I thought, was to have them show us how it is that they see themselves. To make it even more convenient, I awarded the story's main characters with what should be an easy life. I came away surprised, for behind the lofty ambition that comes with such a life, suddenly there appeared before me empty souls wandering aimlessly about like critters in a desert."
In Long Wong Charlie's view, this novel is not necessarily a commentary on the Asian psyche. It is rather a story of immigrants who are lost and confused, though at the same time profoundly filled with good intentions. The author adds, "Behind the guise of humor, I had a responsibility to fulfill each and every one of these intentions. I am a simple man, always have been. What came away, as you can imagine, was a feel-good story."
Will our diminutive hero find the key to happiness? The answer lies between the sensational pages of the e-book "All Good Dragons Have Wonton for Breakfast," available now for download on Amazon for only $6.40. For purchase, please visit http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00K0QIIUS
