Description



About the Book



Envisioning a summer vacation in the humble Singapore home of a boy she hopes to marry, Chinese American Rachel Chu is unexpectedly introduced to a rich and scheming clan that strongly opposes their son's relationship with an American girl.



Book Synopsis



A hilarious and heartwarming New York Times bestselling novel--the basis for the acclaimed major motion picture!

There's rich, there's filthy rich, and then there's crazy rich ... A Pride and Prejudice-like send-up about an heir bringing his Chinese-American girlfriend home to meet his ancestor-obsessed family." -PEOPLE

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.

Look for Kevin Kwan's latest novel, Sex & Vanity!



Review Quotes



"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
