About the Author

Lauren Ho Profile Picture
Lauren is a reformed legal counsel who writes funny stories. Hailing from Malaysia, she lived in the United Kingdom, France and Luxembourg before moving with her family to Singapore, where she is ostensibly working on her next novel. LAST TANG STANDING is not based on her mother. At all. Seriously.

What People Are Saying

This book was so much fun! I received an ARC from work and was only intending to flip through a couple of pages, just to get a feel of the writing style and the general plot, but Lauren Ho had me laughing to myself within the first chapter and I knew I had to continue reading… Our protagonist Andrea, is smart, hilarious and extremely relatable….I really liked Lauren Ho’s writing style. It’s very fluid and she is able to switch easily between the funny moments and the serious parts…It was fun and entertaining but it also had an important underlying message. I can’t wait for this to be out in the world, and I’m really looking forward to what this author writes next! (Please, please let it be a sequel!)

Alethea, Goodreads, ARC from HarperFiction

The tagline of “Crazy Rich Asians” meets “Bridget Jones’s Diary” perfectly captures the essence of this book. I picked it up on a whim and I couldn’t put it down…Lauren Ho writes with humor and heart; I finished this in one sitting and found myself going back to re-read some of the more funny and touching parts!

Teresa, Goodreads, ARC from Penguin

Witty, vibrant and full of characters I’d love to go for drinks with… Andrea is the millennial Bridget.

Louise Hare, author of This Lovely City!

A smart and witty depiction of navigating the world of dating, coupled with the messy (but amusing) dynamics of family life.

Jennifer Joyce, author of The Accidental Life Swap

Joyful, exuberant and very funny. An absolute treat.

Nicola Gill, author of The Neighbours

LAST TANG STANDING has bucketloads of charm. Both affecting and uplifting, this book is for anyone who has ever had a problem with family and boundaries… in fact, for anyone who has ever had a family.

Kat Gordon, author of An Unsuitable Woman

Your new favourite singleton is here and her name is Andrea Tang! Lauren Ho’s irresistible LAST TANG STANDING sparkles with that perfect match of hilarity and heart on every page … You’ll fall in love with this warm, witty and winning tale.

Aimee Agresti, author of Campaign Widows

LAST TANG STANDING is a hilarious transcontinental romp filled with characters that crackle off the page. Lauren Ho’s incisive, sharp voice lays bare one of the central questions in many professional women’s lives – is everything we give up to live a “good life” worth it?

Andie J. Christophe, USA Today bestselling author of Not That Kind of Guy

I absolutely adored it. It is the funniest rom-com I’ve read in a very long time… Andrea stole my heart … I cannot wait to get my hands on whatever Lauren Ho writes next.

Beth O’Leary, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Flatshare
