    DescriptionDallas meets Pride and Prejudice in this fabulous, uproariously funny novel about what it means to be young, in love, and gloriously, crazily rich. When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn't know is that Nick's family home happens to look like a palace, that she'll ride in more private planes than cars and that she is about to encounter the strangest, craziest group of people in existence. Uproarious, addictive, and filled with jaw-dropping opulence, Crazy Rich Asians is an insider's look at the Asian jet set; and a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money.

    Review quote
    "'Original and fun, Crazy Rich Asians is quite a roller coaster trip. I loved it!' (Jackie Collins) 'Mordantly funny' (Anna Wintour) 'Unputdownably funny... a Chinese Dallas meets Pride and Prejudice' (Plum Sykes, bestselling author of BERGDORF BLONDES) 'This summer's Bergdorf Blondes, over-the-top funny and a novelty to boot. Mr. Kwan delivers nonstop hoots about a whole new breed of rich, vulgar, brand-name-dropping conspicuous consumers' (Janet Maslin, New York Times) 'If your definition of a beach read is a book version of Vogue, then this is the book for you' (Emma G Keller, 'Best Beach Reads' 2013, Guardian.co.uk) 'Kwan's satirical portrait rings so true, I fear he'll need to bring a bodyguard next time he lands at [Singapore's] Changi Airport' (Elle US)"
