Publishers Weekly's offers high praise for The Son of Good Fortune, the new novel by Saint Mary's English Professor Lysley Tenorio. In its recent starred review of Tenorio's new work, PW calls the book a delightful accomplishment, adding "Tenorio’s mordant and moving debut novel (after the collection Monstress) follows the travails of an undocumented Filipino immigrant mother and son. Tenorio’s tale of Excel and Maxima’s gradual reconciliation takes a searing look at the ways they’ve taken care of and failed each other. This is a wonderful achievement." Read the PW review.
