What happens when a thirty-something, newly divorced man
discovers courage and adventure, thanks to a karaoke contest? In Adventures of the Karaoke King, Harold
Taw introduces us to Guy Watanabe, a man marginally aware of his Asian
background and decidedly unaware of how poorly he has planned for his future.
In this riotous, often thoughtful, and always entertaining novel, readers are
taken on a memorable journey that crosses America, Asia, and back, with the
last leg spent in a shipping container.
As we follow Guy on his odyssey, we meet a former Thai
prostitute and her fiancé, who orchestrates a beating to the overly attentive

Provocative, taunting, and dependably wayward, Watanabe has
lessons to learn about understanding who he is, and readers may learn a few
along the way. Download and start listening now!
