Description

Select Praise (published as Under Your Wings in Australia)

"Addressing Indonesia's violent history, the 1998 May riots, and discrimination against the country's ethnic Chinese minority, Tiffany Tsao offers an incisive critique of rich and powerful Chinese Indonesians, family bonds, and privilege. The book challenges many assumptions of what "Indonesia" is and provides a nuanced picture of wealthy Asian families in the transnational context. A compelling page-turner, it reveals the intricate dynamics between love, ambition, and fear as we journey through dark family secrets and unlock door after door before reaching the dead end. The Majesties is a chilling novel about what a family is capable of for the sake of maintaining illusions and the desperate, destructive ways that its entrapped members must take in order to escape." --Intan Paramaditha, author of Apple and Knife and The Wandering

"One of the most gripping, original and enlightening novels of the day." --SA Weekend

"Tiffany Tsao's Under Your Wings is a sharply realised page-turner with a brilliant twist, written with an effortless command of pace and suspense." --Sydney Morning Herald

"Tiffany Tsao's novel of sisters Gwendolyn and Estella is haunting, disturbing and vivid. It is one of those novels that has such a strong opening chapter that I questioned if the author would be able to meet my expectations for the rest of the novel. But meet them she did." --Readings
