about this item

What happens when a thirty-something, newly divorced man discovers courage and adventure, thanks to a karaoke contest? In Adventures of the Karaoke King, Harold Taw introduces us to Guy Watanabe, a man marginally aware of his Asian background and decidedly unaware of how poorly he has planned for his future. In this riotous, often thoughtful, and always entertaining novel, readers are taken on a memorable journey that crosses America, Asia, and back, with the last leg spent in a shipping container. As we follow Guy on his odyssey, we meet a former Thai prostitute and her fiancé, who orchestrates a beating to the overly attentive Watanabe and steals his cherished karaoke medal. We get to know a closeted gay man, a heavily-armed dwarf, and a Chinese businessman so determined to become the king of a worldwide karaoke empire that nothing — and no one — will block his path. Provocative, taunting, and dependably wayward, Watanabe has lessons to learn about understanding who he is, and readers may learn a few along the way.
