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 oval-cut diamond, a wedding dress she loves, and a fiance willing to give up one of the biggest fortunes in Asia in order to marry her. Still, Rachel mourns the fact that her birth father, 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.

Review Text

Just as Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice gave us insight into the English class system of the Regency era, Kevin Kwan uses biting social commentary to illuminate the lives of Asia's modern-day wealthy elite. Except he's 10 times funnier than Austen. Herald Sun

Review quote

High jinks, high living and hilarity * Sydney Morning Herald * His novels are comedies of bad manners; a Far-Eastern mash-up of Trollope, Austen and Gossip Girl. * Financial Review * Deliciously fun... Comic satire at its best. * Who Weekly * To be let loose into the decadent playground of the filthy rich offers the reader a heady taste of vicarious escapism. Yet to dismiss this book as merely a soulless lark would be a disservice to Kwan and his impeccable writing. * Sunday Age * His novels are the equivalent of a Bubble Tea concoction laced with Henry James extracts and Jackie Collins sprinkles - tracking a level of wealth that makes even Downton Abbey look more like Downton Arriviste. * The Daily Beast * Just as Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice gave us insight into the English class system of the Regency era, Kevin Kwan uses biting social commentary to illuminate the lives of Asia's modern-day wealthy elite. Except he's 10 times funnier than Austen. * Herald Sun *
