Now a major SBS television series!

Meet the Law family – eccentric, endearing and hard to resist. Your guide: Benjamin, the third of five children and a born humorist. Join him as he tries to answer some puzzling questions: Why won’t his Chinese dad wear made-in-China underpants? Why was most of his extended family deported in the 1980s? Will his childhood dreams of Home and Away stardom come to nothing? What are his chances of finding love?

Hilarious and moving, The Family Law is a linked series of tales from a beloved Australian writer.

‘A vivid, gorgeously garish, Technicolour portrait of a family. It’s impossible not to let oneself go along for the ride and emerge at the book’s end enlightened, touched, thrilling with laughter.’—Marieke Hardy

‘Benjamin Law manages to be scatagogical, hilarious and heartbreaking all at the same time. Every sentence fizzes like an exploding fireball of energy.’—Alice Pung

‘Very may find yourself at times almost barking with laughter’—the Monthly

‘An addictive read.’—Courier-Mail

Benjamin Law is the author of The Family Law and Gaysia, and a frequent contributor to the Monthly, frankie and Good Weekend. Benjamin writes for publications, businesses and agencies worldwide, and co-wrote the TV adaptation of The Family Law for SBS and Matchbox Pictures.

    I loved it, it's an insightful read from an Asian family managing life in Australia.
  • Quick and funny

    It is a very fast read and has some lovely laugh out loud moments. His love of his family shines through and adds to the humour of their off coloured, and sometimes dark, family jokes. Enjoyed it.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was embarrassed to find myself on public transport, with my shoulders heaving & my face screwed up trying to not laugh out loud. Benjamin Law writes in a way that you can relate to and gives a great insight into being raised as an Australian in an Asian family. Not to mention the gay aspect! My only disappointment was that the tale had to come to an end. Thoroughly recommend this book. Hope there is more to come.
