Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“ Behind the Moonis a satisfying, original and thought-provoking pleasure.”- Good Reading Magazine “Neatly balanc[es] betrayal and real drama, with farce and macabre, biting humour. . . . Highly recommended.”- Australian Bookseller & Publisher Outsiders and misfits in their Australian school, three friends form a mutual bond: Justin Cheong, an only child and the idol of his Singaporean-Chinese parents; Tien Ho-daughter of a Vietnamese mother who stayed behind and an African American soldier she has never met-who lives with indifferent relatives; and Nigel “Gibbo” Gibson, an oddity: an Australian boy who, to his father's chagrin, dislikes sports. When Tien Ho's mother arrives, the adjustment for mother and daughter is extreme. Gibbo is strongly attracted to beautiful, dainty Linh, to whom he is a kid, her daughter's pal. And Justin discovers that he likes Gibbo as something more than a friend. The three draw apart as they grow up, only to be reunited once more on Saturday, September 6, 1997, for the dinner Mrs. Cheong hosts for them and their parents, to watch the funeral of Princess Diana on television. This Dead Diana Dinner turns out to be a more explosive event than any of them would have dreamed possible. From the Trade Paperback edition.
