China Rich Girlfriend - Crazy Rich Asians (Paperback)Kevin Kwan (author)
- 5+ in stock
From the bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians, now 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.

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 *
