Crazy Rich Asians

A Novel

The acclaimed international bestseller ("A dizzily shopaholic comedy." -- The New York Times ) soon to be a MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh and Gemma Chan!
When New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country's most eligible bachelor.
On Nick's arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers.
Rezension
"A dizzily shopaholic comedy. . . . Wickedly delectable. . . . Offers refreshing nouveau voyeurism to readers who long ago burned out on American and English aspirational fantasies. . . . Hilarious."
- Janet Maslin, The New York Times
"It's impossible not to get sucked into this satirical novel about the jet-setting lives of an enormous busybody family and its infinite Louboutin collection."
- Glamour
"There's rich, there's filthy rich, and then there's crazy rich. . . . A Pride and Prejudice -like send-up."
-People
"If this isn't the funniest book so far this year, it's up there. . . . Kwan, who grew up in Singapore, skewers his subjects deftly, stylishly, and completely-but with heart."
- The Denver Post
"Deliciously decadent. . . . This 48-karat beach read is crazy fun. . . . [Read] Crazy Rich Asians , on an exotic beach in super-expensive sunglasses."
- Entertainment Weekly
"An unputdownably funny, original, modern novel. . . . I actually couldn't put this book down to eat or to watch Downton Abbey ."
-Plum Sykes, author of Bergdorf Blondes
"Rachel's squeaky-clean naiveté is a clever foil to the intricate workings of the high-glamour Asian set around her. Chinese on the outside but all-American on the inside, she allows us to see the myriad nuances of intra-Asian culture that the novel goes to great lengths to show."
-Tash Aw, NPR
"Rollicking. . . . A lively, generous story of shallow extravagance and human devotion."
- The Boston Globe
"Original and fun, Crazy Rich Asians is quite a roller coaster trip. I loved it!"
-Jackie Collins, author of The Power Trip
"Delightfully soapy. . . . [ Crazy Rich Asians ] eats its chiffon cake and has it too, simultaneously tut-tutting many of its characters for their vapid materialism while reveling in the milieu's sybaritic excess."
- The Wall Street Journal
"As spicily adventurous and lusciously satisfying as the renowned Singaporean street food Kevin Kwan's characters argue over; hot and sizzling, like the best satay , and dreamily transporting, like everyone's favorite dessert- goreng pisang . Feast on this outrageously funny and insightful novel of modern manners, and enjoy!"
-Lisa See, author of Dreams of Joy and Shanghai Girls
"[An] instant favorite. . . . Opulence and zaniness reign."
- O, The Oprah Magazine
"Like Dynasty on steroids with more private jets, bigger houses, and a lot more money."
-VanityFair.com
"Kevin Kwan gets it right in his debut novel steeped in love and dripping with money."
- Daily Candy
"Both a deliciously satiric read and a Fodor's of sorts to the world of Singapore's fabulously moneyed, both new and old."
- The Daily News
"Jane Austen, or maybe Edith Wharton, goes to Singapore, turning in this lively, entertaining novel of manners."
- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Mordantly funny. . . . [A] winning summer satire."
-Vogue
"A juicy, close anthropological read of Singapore high society."
- Elle
"Shrewd, funny, sexy. . . . At once a love story and a potent combination of vintage Jackie Collins and early Evelyn Waugh."
-Michael Korda, author of Charmed Lives
"A witty tongue-in-cheek frolic about what it means to be from really old money and what it's like to be crazy rich."
- Publishers Weekly , Pick of the Week
