NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians (soon to be a MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh and Gemma Chan) and China Rich Girlfriend, is back with an uproarious new novel of a family riven by fortune, an ex-wife driven psychotic with jealousy, a battle royal fought through couture gown sabotage, and the heir to one of Asia's greatest fortunes locked out of his inheritance.
When Nicholas Young hears that his grandmother, Su Yi, is on her deathbed, he rushes to be by her bedside—but he's not alone. The entire Shang-Young clan has convened from all corners of the globe to stake claim on their matriarch’s massive fortune. With each family member vying to inherit Tyersall Park—a trophy estate on 64 prime acres in the heart of Singapore—Nicholas’s childhood home turns into a hotbed of speculation and sabotage. As her relatives fight over heirlooms, Astrid Leong is at the center of her own storm, desperately in love with her old sweetheart Charlie Wu, but tormented by her ex-husband—a man hell bent on destroying Astrid’s reputation and relationship. Meanwhile Kitty Pong, married to China’s second richest man, billionaire Jack Bing, still feels second best next to her new step-daughter, famous fashionista Colette Bing. A sweeping novel that takes us from the elegantly appointed mansions of Manila to the secluded private islands in the Sulu Sea, from a kidnapping at Hong Kong’s most elite private school to a surprise marriage proposal at an Indian palace, caught on camera by the telephoto lenses of paparazzi, Kevin Kwan's hilarious, gloriously wicked new novel reveals the long-buried secrets of Asia's most privileged families and their rich people problems.
Having been born and raised in Singapore, author Kevin Kwan, indulged in several interesting activities before he returned to his favorite.....that of writing. Kevin lived in Manhattan to pursue a BFA at Parson's School of Design. After attaining his degree, he worked for Martha Stewart Living, Andy Warhol's magazine, Interview, and the legendary design firm created by Tibor Kalman, M&Co.
In 2000 he established his own creative studio where he produced high profile visual projects for very famous clients.
Even though he was very much demanded by big name clients, he decided to return to his passion of writing. His debut novel was in 2013, Crazy Rich Asians, which is also being made into a major motion picture. The sequel, China Rich Girlfriend was a huge hit worldwide, then was followed by the last in the trilogy, Rich People Problems, which was released in 2017. Kevin still resides in Manhattan.
