Original and fun, Crazy Rich Asians is quite a roller coaster trip. I loved it!
Anna Wintour, Vogue
A juicy, close anthropological read of Singapore high society.
Like Dynasty on steroids.
A dizzily shopaholic comedy.
New York Times
Plum Sykes, bestselling author of 'Bergdorf Blondes'
Hooks and reels in even the reluctant reader.
If your definition of a beach read is a book version of Vogue, then this is the book for you.
Impossible not to get sucked in.
Wall Street Journal
A Pride and Prejudice-like send-up.
A breathless, high-speed romp.
Tash Aw, award-winning author of 'The Harmony Silk Factory'
Outrageously funny and insightful.
Lisa See, bestselling author of 'Dreams of Joy'
Opulence and zaniness reign.
O, The Oprah Magazine
Shrewd, funny, sexy.
Michael Korda, author of 'Charmed Lives'
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.
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
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.
Deliciously fun... Comic satire at its best.
His novels are comedies of bad manners; a Far-Eastern mash-up of Trollope, Austen and Gossip Girl.
High jinks, high living and hilarity
