Stephanie Suga Chen is a US expatriate based in Singapore. A Taiwanese-American, she moved to Singapore in 2012 with her husband, two children, and ageing cocker spaniel. On Saturday, 20th January at 2.00 p.m., Stephanie will swing by our bookstore to promote her debut novel ­– Travails of a Trailing Spouse.

The novel begins with Sarah, a successful but unhappy lawyer in the US, quitting her job and moving to Singapore with her husband and children. They become part of a close-knit group of expatriates and enjoy evenings filled with Trivia Nights and drinks. When cracks appear in this seemingly perfect world, Sarah and her friends discover how complicated and varied life can be.

Travails of a Trailing Spouse will strike a chord with anyone, expat or not, who has ever found life more complicated, puzzling, thrilling, frustrating – and ultimately, deliciously rich.
