‘The Family Law’ was released in 2010 and charts Law’s teenage years in Queensland. When the book was released Law told OUTinPerth that his mother was quite a character.

‘My mother is Chinese Malaysian and I think there is something about Chinese people that makes them very very frank about things like bodily functions,’ Law laughed on the phone from his Queensland home.

‘I don’t know if it’s a cultural thing but they get graphic with stuff.

‘My mother, in the first five to 10 minutes of meeting my friends, will ask them whether they are going to have children and if they say they are planning to have children she will give them pretty stark advice about the whole process of giving birth and what happens to your vagina when that happens.” Law said.
