Publisher's Summary

Larry Feldman desperately needed a kidney. After two god-awful years on dialysis, watching his life ebb away while waiting on a transplant list behind 74,000 other Americans, the gun-toting couch potato decided to risk everything and travel to China, the controversial kingdom of organ transplants. But Larry urgently needed his cousin Daniel’s help . . . even though they had been on the outs with each other for years. So begins the quest of two star-crossed cousins to rejuvenate Larry’s failing body and ever-romantic heart, while avoiding getting tossed into a Chinese slammer.

Critic Reviews

"Author Daniel Rose acts out his book-length stand-up comedy routine about going to China in search of a kidney for his cousin Larry. The performance is reminiscent of a nightclub act, so listeners can expect a little smut and lots of double entendres. The shrieking voice of the author/narrator creates a character for Larry and another for the sexy and not-too-innocent local guide. The girl speaks the stereotypical broken English we expect from uneducated Chinese in Hollywood movies. Frequent quotes from ungrammatical fortune cookies come preceded by the sound of a small bell. Within a short time, listeners will realize they can’t expect anything serious but may have become so caught up in the absurdity that it doesn’t matter." (AudioFile)

Modern Quest

I purchased this book after hearing the author interviewed on NPR by Leonard Lopate. There was something about him that intrigued me. And the book did not disppoint, though it was different to what I expected. This is a story about an intriguing character, Larry, his cousin, the author and how they take control of the situation to save Larry's life.
It's an account of their journey and the people they meet along the way. It's also about some of the ways that the people of China differ from the people of the West, and also how connections are made in spite of the differences. Often funny, I would recommend this book if just because Larrys are rare these days. He so reminds me of my father's generation, absolutely untouched by "political correctness" or deference. Larry makes no apologies for being who he is, and he is in many ways reprehensible. But why do I like him so much? Why did I root for him to succeed and survive? Please, listen to it and tell me!
