Waterstones Says

A black comedy suffused with gallows humour and spiky wit, Sutanto's story of the eponymous aunties covering up an accidental killing mixes bravura set pieces with zinging one-liners.

Longlisted for the Comedy Women in Print Prize 2021

Your family would kill to see you happy

Are you... dead?
Oh my God, I think he is.
Well that didn't quite go quite to plan.
It's pretty bad timing really

When Meddy Chan accidentally kills her blind date, she turns to her aunties for help. Their meddling set her up on the date so they kind of owe her.

Although hiding this goddamn dead body is going to be harder than they thought especially when her family's wedding business has THE biggest wedding of the year happening right now.

It turns out the wedding venue just happens to be managed by Meddy's ex, aka the one who got away. It's the worst time to see him again, or...is it? Can Meddy finally find love and make her overbearing family happy?
