On sale now Review first posted on Fantasy LiteratureA bitter ongoing uarrel with her mother about her career plans to be a chef led Natalie Tan to leave her San Francisco home in anger Seven years of stubborn silence and globe wandering later Natalie is called home by a neighbor at her mother s passing She still deeply desires to be a chef and to have her own authentic Chinese restaurant like her grandmother iao had done many years earlier and now she ll have the chance Natalie has inherited her laolao s maternal grandmother s long abandoned restaurant below their apartment It s still operable though dusty and dirty but their Chinatown neighborhood is fraying with family owned businesses dying and a steep rise in real estate prices causing Chinese families to move away A psychically gifted neighbor returns iao s old handmade recipe book to Natalie along with a prediction if Natalie cooks three recipes from the book to help three of her neighbors as her laolao did many years ago and is able to save these neighbors her restaurant will be the jewel of Chinatown and the neighborhood will be revitalized Natalie is initially dubious and reluctant she feels like her neighbors had let her down when she was struggling to deal with her mother s agoraphobia years ago but she soon enters into the spirit of the endeavor and magical things begin to happen when her neighbors eat her foodAs I watched fractures ran along the surface of their skin reminding me of shattered porcelain The cracks deepened as they ate Once they were finished tiny streams of glittering gold filled the cracks mending repairing what was broken and transforming it into something far beautiful It was similar to a piece of kintsukuroi I d picked up in Tokyo repaired pottery that had been mended with goldAs Natalie begins cooking in iao s restaurant the scent of fried dumplings even leads a handsome young man to her restaurant and her life But neither love nor her uest to help the neighborhood is as easy as Natalie had expected Natalie Tan s Book of Luck and Fortune is a charming sweet tale with a dash of magical realism I expected something like The Joy Luck Club or a Chinese American version of Like Water for Chocolate What I got was like a literary version of a Hallmark TV romance movie It s so lightweight as to approach being fluffy though the immersion in Chinese culture and food serves to give it some heft and make the story memorable Several Chinese recipes are included in the novel and they and the luscious descriptions of Natalie s cooking made my mouth water The romance subplot wasn t particularly well developed or romantically satisfying I got far enjoyment out of reading about the plump prawns and tender steamed rice noodles and crunchy golden fritters Debut author Roselle Lim incorporates a few serious issues into her tale including mental illness and the loss of ethnic urban neighborhoods Her writing is sometimes clunky phrases like gathering fog brewed at the base of the gate the way steam rises from a perfect bowl of noodle soup and hoping the fog would thicken like salted duck congee to conceal my arrival struck me as unintentionally humorous Natalie Tan s Book of Luck and Fortune is a warmhearted tale with an authentic Chinese voice if not as deep and literary as one might hope Don t expect too much from this book and you may enjoy it Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the ARC
