"When you read a book like Crazy Rich Asians you have to wonder what on earth could have inspired Kevin Kwan to whip up such a fun, heady confection of old money, new money, social climbing, and jet setting. Well, we asked him to give us his summer reading recommendations, and it turns out his reading list offers a major clue. Read on to see what we mean.
To me, there’s nothing better than a great book enjoyed over a languid summer weekend. I love to mix things up by reading biographies of glittering characters along with novels set in far flung summery destinations. So mix yourself a Bellini, find a cool shady spot, and prepare to get lost in these fascinating lives and worlds."
