A wickedly funny new novel of social climbing, secret emails, art-world scandal and lovesick billionaires from the internationally bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians.
Kevin Kwan was born and raised in Singapore and lives in New York City. He has worked in magazine publishing and as a creative consultant to publishers and authors. China Rich Girlfriend is the follow-up to Crazy Rich Asians.
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 *
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. * Sunday Age *
Deliciously fun... Comic satire at its best. * Who Weekly *
His novels are comedies of bad manners; a Far-Eastern mash-up of Trollope, Austen and Gossip Girl. * Financial Review *
High jinks, high living and hilarity * Sydney Morning Herald *
