THE OFFICIAL MOVIE TIE-IN EDITION. Soon to be a major motion picture from Warner Brothers, the funny, juicy first novel in the bestselling Crazy Rich Asians trilogy, in which the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend home to meet the family ... without telling her that they're loaded. The film releases August 17, 2018 and stars Constance Wu and Henry Golding. When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality 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 with one of Asia's most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In this romp of a novel, narrator Lynn Chen goes to great lengths to convey the Asian-centric nature of the story in heavy Asian-accented English…[and] the pretentious Europeans are also rendered with laughable characterizations. The satire of the novel is at the heart of the story and part of the fun. Chen’s reading has the diverse qualities of a one-woman show. She varies her pitch for male and female characters and presents the modal tones of Cantonese perfectly. The plot includes a broad cast of characters, which Chen makes distinctive and, thereby, easier to remember.” AudioFile
“Deliciously decadent…This forty-eight-karat beach read is crazy fun.” Entertainment Weekly
“There’s rich, there’s filthy rich, and then there’s crazy rich..A Pride and Prejudice-like send-up.” People
“A dizzily shopaholic comedy…Wickedly delectable…Offers refreshing nouveau voyeurism to readers who long ago burned out on American and English aspirational fantasies…Hilarious.” 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
