There rich, there’s filthy rich, and then there’s crazy rich. And this debut novel by Kevin Kwan is rich in laughs, snobbery, opulence and insights on Singapore and China’s elite. A friend of mine recently recommended Crazy Rich Asians to me and as promised, I cannot put down this satirical page-turner.
An insider-y look into the zany (and couture loving) lives of the Asian jet-set, the book is hilariously written and impossible to put down. Let’s just say Kevin skewers his fellow Singaporeans with no holds barred. And the motley crew of characters! Sweet Jesus, the cast here feels like Christmas. For example, there’s Kitty Pong: a soap opera actress-slash-ex porn star. You catch my drift.
The even better news? The tome is going to be adapted into a movie. Happy reading!
