A highly original collection of stories by a talented young writer. In the comic-tragic title story, the genial, disabled old narrator sells lottery tickets on a street corner in bustling Saigon. In ‘Mekong Love’, two young people in a restrictive society try to find a way to consummate their relationship. What does it mean to be Asian? What does it mean to be white? And what makes up identity? Lucky Ticket introduces a diverse range of characters, all with distinctive voices, and makes us think differently about identity, mixed-race relationships, difficulties between family generations, war and dislocation.
