What would you do if your carefully planned life was falling apart?
Like many women, Kat Miller dreams of having a satisfying career, a loving family, and a house of her own. But Kat has taken things further than most, documenting her dreams in a "Life Plan," so that nothing will go wrong. Yet something has: Dan, her husband of five years. Kat suspects that Dan, recently unemployed, is spending more time in yoga class with his beautiful classmate than he is looking for a job. When Dan announces that he has enrolled in a massage course in Thailand, Kat is convinced she has to go with him to save her marriage.
From the offices of Washington, DC, to the gritty streets of Bangkok to the mountain region of Chiang Mai, from the serenity of ancient Buddhist ruins to the passion of the jungle to all-night beach parties, Kat narrates her quest to have it all, only to wonder if having it all is all there is.
"Here is the American abroad who is neither ugly, nor quiet, nor lost in translation: rather, she is a heroine for our times, unafraid of confronting life as it is. You love Kat for her vulnerability, even as you laugh out loud at her convoluted, comic careening through the world." - Xu Xi, author of Evanescent Isles and The Unwalled City
"The Life Plan is a screwball comedy for the 21st century, a witty and winning romp through one woman's discovery that life, love, and liberty do not always go according to plan." - Robert Eversz, author of the Nina Zero novels
