Description

From the bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians (Soon to be a MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh and Gemma Chan) comes a deliciously fun story of family, fortune, and fame in Mainland China. It's the eve of Rachel Chu's wedding, and she should be over the moon. She has a flawless Asscher-cut diamond, a wedding dress she loves, and a fiance willing to thwart his meddling relatives and give up one of the biggest fortunes in Asia in order to marry her. Still, Rachel mourns the fact that her birthfather, a man she never knew, won't be there to walk her down the aisle. Then a chance accident reveals his identity. Suddenly, Rachel is drawn into a dizzying world of Shanghai splendor, a world where people attend church in a penthouse, where exotic cars race down the boulevard, and where people aren't just crazy rich ... they're China rich.show more

Review quote

Snarky. . . Wicked. . . Funny. Janet Maslin, The New York Times Deliciously fun. . . . Satire at its best. People Scandalous. Town and Country Makes Downton Abbeylook more likeDownton Arrivistes. . . . Ingenious. The Daily Beast Frothy. Hanya Yanigahara, Conde Nast Traveler Lifestyles of the rich and famous, China-style The Houston Chronicle This year's best beach reading. . . . As frothy as the egg whites on the sort of cocktail you should drink while reading Kwan s books. . . . Highly entertaining. The Washington Post A crazy parade through the lives of the aspirational elite. Los Angeles Times The equivalent of a Bubble Tea concoction laced with Henry James extracts and Jackie Collins sprinkles. . . . In the same way that Edith Wharton catalogued the Gilded Age via novels likeThe Age of Innocence, Kwan in his novels is doing his bit for a China that now has the second-highest number of millionaires in the world. The Daily Beast A taste of Asian opulence served with skewering humor. The Daily News Kwan s characters are powerful and attractive, living in the lap of luxury. NPR, All Things Considered Very enjoyable. . . . Just as funny as Crazy Rich Asians, this globe-spanning tale of excess includes enough snootiness and class snobbery to fill a multitude of designer handbags. Minneapolis Star Tribune With the same hilarity . . . as the first novel, China Rich Girlfriend will not disappoint both fans and newcomers to the series. Town and Country An equally good-natured, catty-as-hell sequel. . . . Part Oscar Wilde, part Judith Krantz, part Arthur Frommer . . . Hilarious . . . Over-the-top and hard to stop. Kirkus Reviews China Rich Girlfriend is the most fun I ve had reading a book in quite some time. . . . A jam-packed, lively story. Amy Scribner, BookPage A heady taste of vicarious escapism. . . . ReadChina Rich Girlfriendfor the exuberant spectacle of zippy vintage cars, gossipy matriarchs-who-lunch and reckless profligacy but read it also for its very engaging narrative about people like us. Thuy On, The Sydney Morning Herald [An] amusing, whirlwind novel. The Miami Herald LikeGossip GirlandDynastyand the royal family of England all at the same time. Kwan s characters behave hideously and it s hilarious. Elaine Lainey Lui, Flare Will have readers clamoring for more. Library Journal (starred review) An engaging page-turner with a multi-layered, inventive narrative. Kwan has clearly taken a few lessons from one of America s great social satirists think Tom Wolfe set loose on the wealthiest enclaves of Confucian Asia. South China Morning Post "show more
