From the bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians and China Rich Girlfriend, here is the uproarious conclusion to the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy.

When Nicholas Young hears that his grandmother, Su Yi, is on her deathbed, he rushes to her bedside—but he’s not alone. It seems the entire Shang-Young clan has convened from all corners of the globe, ostensibly to care for their matriarch, but truly to stake claim on the massive fortune that Su Yi controls. With each family member secretly fantasizing about getting the keys to Tyersall Park, the place becomes a hotbed of intrigue. As relatives claw over heirlooms, Astrid Leong finds herself at the center of her own storm, desperately in love with her old sweetheart Charlie Wu, but tormented by his ex-wife—a woman hell-bent on destroying Astrid’s reputation and relationship. Meanwhile Kitty Pong, married to billionaire Jack Bing and determined to raise their son more lavishly than a future king, finds a formidable opponent in his fashionista daughter, Colette.

A sweeping novel that takes us from the elegantly-appointed mansions of Manila to the secluded private islands in the Sulu Sea, from a schoolyard kidnapping to a gold leaf dance floor spattered with blood, Kevin Kwan’s gloriously wicked novel reveals the long-buried secrets and rich people problems of Asia’s most privileged families.

A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2017
An Esquire Best Book of 2017


Rich People Problems is a fun tabloid romp full of over-the-top shenanigans…a memorable, laugh-out-loud Asian glitz fest that’s a pure pleasure to read.” —USA Today

“Kwan’s world is so outrageous and so wicked it succeeds in making Downton Abbey look like Downton Arriviste, and Gossip Girl feel gauche. [Rich People Problems is] packed to the gills, as ever, with real estate porn, a foodies free-for-all and fashion’s Little Black Book.” —Toronto Star

“The fairy tale/soap opera/lux-a-thon that began with Crazy Rich Asians (2013) and China Rich Girlfriend (2015) comes to a fit-tingly majestic and hilarious end in Kwan’s third novel…. Alamak! as they say in Singapore. Please say it isn’t over! Of course everything’s wrapped up perfectly and tied with a (priceless, hand-painted, 15th-century) bow—but not since we were kicked out of Hogwarts and Downton Abbey have we felt so adrift.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Pure entertainment. Think: Bravo’s Housewives but with a lot more money and, as a result, a lot more drama.” —Nylon

“Kevin Kwan has done it again.” —InStyle

“[A] hilarious family drama…. This delightfully wicked family saga will have you laughing over your summer daiquiris at the long-buried secrets of Asia’s most privileged families and their rich people problems.” —Redbook

“The perfect indulgent long weekend read.” —Elle

“I gobbled all three volumes of Kevin Kwan’s gossipy, name-droppy and wickedly funny Crazy Rich Asians trilogy as if they were popcorn…. Irresistible.” —The Seattle Times

“Enthralling…. A voyeuristic pleasure to read.” —Esquire

“One of this summer’s best breezy beach reads, an audacious satire that lifts the curtain on the jet-set one percent of Southeast Asian multibillionaires.” —The Globe and Mail

Praise for China Rich Girlfriend:

 
“Delicious…. Nuanced (and savage) in its social deconstruction—and even more fun [than Crazy Rich Asians].” —Maclean’s
 
“Take a Jane Austen novel, combine it with Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and set it in the glittering capitals of Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore. What have you got? This deliciously fun follow-up to Kwan’s bestselling Crazy Rich Asians.” —People

“The summer’s funniest beach read.” —Vanity Fair

“I loved China Rich Girlfriend…. [It’s] like Gossip Girl and Dynasty and the royal family of England all at the same time. Kwan’s characters behave hideously—and it’s hilarious.” —Elaine Lui, Flare
