Crazy Rich Asians - Crazy Rich Asians (Paperback)Kevin Kwan (author)
- In stock
Kevin Kwan’s internationally bestselling debut is a delicious satirical rollercoaster ride amongst the super-rich of Singapore. Packed with humour, delicious drama and tantalising opulence, Crazy Rich Asians is a thoroughly entertaining portrait of beautiful, vulgar jetsetters wallowing in wealth and eccentricity.
The acclaimed international bestseller now a major motion picture starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh and Gemma Chan!
When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and time with the man she might one day marry.
What she doesn't know is that Nick's family home happens to look like a palace, that she'll ride in more private planes than cars and that she is about to encounter the strangest, craziest group of people in existence.
Uproarious, addictive, and filled with jaw-dropping opulence, Crazy Rich Asians is an insider's look at the Asian jet set; a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money - and a fabulous novel about what it means to be young, in love, and gloriously, crazily rich.
