Everything you need to understand or teach Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan.
Kevin Kwan’s novel Crazy Rich Asians follows New York University professors Nick Young and his girlfriend, Rachel Chu, as they embark on a summer trip to Singapore to see Nick’s family. While for Nick, this summer is just going on holiday to his hometown with his girlfriend, Rachel Chu is completely unprepared for what awaits her on the other side of the world. From the moment she arrives, Singapore swirls with rumors, vicious backstabbers, private investigators, and above all, unthinkably lavish displays of wealth. Crazy Rich Asians explores the gossip, racism, extreme secrecy, and overbearing family members that punctuate Singaporean high society, along with how participating in that society is like taking part in a scripted performance.
