'Just as Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice gave us insight into the English class system of the Regency era, Kevin Kwan uses biting social commentary to illuminate the lives of Asia's modern-day wealthy elite. Except he's 10 times funnier than Austen.' Author: The Herald Sun
'His novels are comedies of bad manners; a Far-Eastern mash-up of Trollope, Austen and Gossip Girl.' Author: Financial Review
'His novels are the equivalent of a Bubble Tea concoction laced with Henry James extracts and Jackie Collins sprinkles – tracking a level of wealth that makes even Downton Abbey look more like Downton Arriviste.' Author: The Daily Beast
A wickedly funny novel of social climbing, secret emails, art-world scandal and lovesick billionaires.
