About the Author

Jesse Q Sutanto grew up shuttling back and forth between Indonesia, Singapore, and Oxford, and considers all three places her home. She has a Masters from Oxford University, but she has yet to figure out how to say that without sounding obnoxious. Jesse has forty-two first cousins and thirty aunties and uncles, many of whom live just down the road. When she's not writing, she's gaming with her husband (mostly FPS), or making a mess in the kitchen with her two daughters.

Reviews

One of PopSugar's 42 Books Everyone Will Be Talking About in 2021!

"Jesse Q. Sutanto's Dial A for Aunties is a hilarious, heartfelt romp of a novel about--what else?--accidental murder and the bond of family. This book had me laughing aloud within its first five pages, and kept me bouncing between anxiety and delight until its very last. Utterly clever, deeply funny, and altogether charming, this book is sure to be one of the best of the year!"--Emily Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read

I LOVED it. Whip-smart, original and so funny. I found it impossible to put down and lost count of the number of times I laughed out loud.--Beth O'Leary, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Switch

"Wrap a romcom with a crime novel, sprinkle in Weekend At Bernie's, and you get this deliciously fun, big-hearted book.... If you love romcoms (this is PERFECT for adaptation) do not miss this 2021 gem of a release."--BookRiot

"The best parts are Sutanto's portrayal of the bantering, interfering aunties ( 'How could you set Meddy up with such a douchebag?' Fourth Aunt snaps at Ma), who excel at wreaking havoc. There's plenty of light entertainment here...--Publishers Weekly

"Murder is never funny, except when it is. In Sutanto's rollicking debut, which she describes in a "Dear reader" foreword as "a love letter to my family--a ridiculously large bunch with a long history of immigration," a fatal accident begets family reconciliation, true love at second sight, and happy beginnings all around."--Booklist
