Lucky's is a story of family.

It is also about a man called Lucky.
His restaurant chain.
A fire that changed everything.
A New Yorker article which might save a career.
The mystery of a missing father.
An impostor who got the girl.
An unthinkable tragedy.
A roll of the dice.
And a story of love, lost, sought and won again, (at last).

PRAISE FOR LUCKY'S

'Andrew Pippos has written an unforgettable epic with Australian humour and Greek tragedian turns on every page. Such skill and heart and love pulses through this debut!' Alice Pung

'A sweeping, sprawling family epic of heartbreak, hope, and redemption. This is the debut of a born storyteller.' Liam Pieper

'Affecting, authentic and tender, Lucky's reminds us that serendipity and salvation can be found in the best kinds of fiction.' Rebecca Starford

'A gorgeous novel of wonderful characters, Lucky's is the real deal and I didn't want it to stop. I was so caught up in the casual charm of this book that I kept being sideswiped by the excellent turns of its plot, and the wise, sometimes disturbing things it has to say about fate, luck and family over the sweep of decades.' Ronnie Scott

'From the first pages of this debut novel, it is clear that we are in the hands of a wise, perceptive, and highly-skilled storyteller. Pippos brilliantly distills multiple stories to those pure moments of love, despair, passion and folly that make up the essence of a life, and his fierce and fragile characters will remain in your heart long after the final page. The writing is fresh and fairly crackles with energy. Lucky's is one of the best Australian novels I've read in years!' Emily Bitto

Stunning debut!
Spanning decades, Lucky’s is an evocative family saga grounded in post war Sydney. A true literary work interwoven with love, tragedy and humanity. Andrew Pippos has created a heartwarming ode to migrant Australia, and to the people who helped to shape our national identity. I recommend everyone read Lucky’s, it is a book that will definitely stay with me.
