Forlagets beskrivelse
Ellen is forty-six, divorced, and having no luck with personal ads when her Chinese girlfriend comes up with a plan: she has a brother in China, Zhong-hua, whos lonely too. Maybe theyd like each other? Taking a leap of faith that most of us wouldnt dare, Ellen travels to China to meet him. Though they speak only a few words of each others language, theres an unspoken connection between them and they decide to marry.What follows is a remarkably touching and humorous story of two people from completely different worlds trying to make a marriage work. Settling in at Ellens ramshackle farmhouse in upstate New York, they quickly discover the cultural chasm that lies between them. Ellen and her teenage daughter decide to adopt a policy of nonjudgment as Zhong-hua lobbies to sell their refrigerator ('Just three people, no need'), serves them giant sea slugs for dinner, and brusquely nudges Ellen aside without an 'excuse me' ('Family no need these kind of words').Zhong-hua is not the type to offer his wife impromptu smiles or hugs, but in bed at night he holds her tightly like shes 'something long lost and precious that might not live until morning.' The Natural Laws of Good Luck is an unusual and exquisitely written love storyone that will resonate with anyone who has ever contemplated with wonder the spaces that exist between us and those we care about.
