Reviews

"A dizzily shopaholic comedy. . . . Wickedly delectable. . . . Offers refreshing nouveau voyeurism to readers who long ago burned out on American and English aspirational fantasies. . . . Hilarious." --Janet Maslin, The New York Times "It's impossible not to get sucked into this satirical novel about the jet-setting lives of an enormous busybody family and its infinite Louboutin collection." --Glamour "There's rich, there's filthy rich, and then there's crazy rich. . . . A Pride and Prejudice-like send-up." --People "If this isn't the funniest book so far this year, it's up there. . . . Kwan, who grew up in Singapore, skewers his subjects deftly, stylishly, and completely--but with heart." --The Denver Post "Deliciously decadent. . . . This 48-karat beach read is crazy fun. . . . [Read] Crazy Rich Asians, on an exotic beach in super-expensive sunglasses." --Entertainment Weekly "An unputdownably funny, original, modern novel. . . . I actually couldn't put this book down to eat or to watch Downton Abbey." --Plum Sykes, author of Bergdorf Blondes "Rachel's squeaky-clean naivet is a clever foil to the intricate workings of the high-glamour Asian set around her. Chinese on the outside but all-American on the inside, she allows us to see the myriad nuances of intra-Asian culture that the novel goes to great lengths to show." --Tash Aw, NPR "Rollicking. . . . A lively, generous story of shallow extravagance and human devotion." --The Boston Globe "Original and fun, Crazy Rich Asians is quite a roller coaster trip. I loved it!" --Jackie Collins, author of The Power Trip "Delightfully soapy. . . . [Crazy Rich Asians] eats its chiffon cake and has it too, simultaneously tut-tutting many of its characters for their vapid materialism while reveling in the milieu's sybaritic excess." --The Wall Street Journal "As spicily adventurous and lusciously satisfying as the renowned Singaporean street food Kevin Kwan's characters argue over; hot and sizzling, like the best satay, and dreamily transporting, like everyone's favorite dessert--goreng pisang. Feast on this outrageously funny and insightful novel of modern manners, and enjoy!" --Lisa See, author of Dreams of Joy and Shanghai Girls "[An] instant favorite. . . . Opulence and zaniness reign." --O, The Oprah Magazine "Like Dynasty on steroids with more private jets, bigger houses, and a lot more money." --VanityFair.com "Kevin Kwan gets it right in his debut novel steeped in love and dripping with money." --Daily Candy "Both a deliciously satiric read and a Fodor's of sorts to the world of Singapore's fabulously moneyed, both new and old." --The Daily News "Jane Austen, or maybe Edith Wharton, goes to Singapore, turning in this lively, entertaining novel of manners." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Mordantly funny. . . . [A] winning summer satire." --Vogue "A juicy, close anthropological read of Singapore high society." --Elle "Shrewd, funny, sexy. . . . At once a love story and a potent combination of vintage Jackie Collins and early Evelyn Waugh." --Michael Korda, author of Charmed Lives "A witty tongue-in-cheek frolic about what it means to be from really old money and what it's like to be crazy rich." --Publishers Weekly, Pick of the Week
