Crazy Rich Asians is a sparkling literary debut (literally — the cover is so blingy it’s blinding) from Kevin Kwan, and it deals with the complicated lives of three incredibly wealthy families based in Singapore. The characters’ separate dramas converge when they attend one of the most buzzed-about weddings Singapore has had in years, and caught up in the middle of it is Rachel Chu, an American-born-Chinese college professor who has no idea that her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, best man at the wedding, is heir to a massive fortune. What ensues during her stay in Singapore is gossiping, backstabbing and family dramas in a world filled with private jets, palatial abodes and designer couture.
