What Kevin Kwan Thinks About Rich Malaysians

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Opinion -

Star2 jour­nal­ist and book writer Ter­ence Toh gets an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with Kevin Kwan, au­thor of the best­selling novel Crazy Rich Asians. Kwan’s story about the wealthy but dys­func­tional Young-T’sien-Shang fam­ily made head­lines re­cently when its Hol­ly­wood film adap­ta­tion cast Michelle Yeoh and Henry Gold­ing in key roles. So what ex­actly does this rich Sin­ga­porean him­self think about wealthy Malaysians? “I shouldn’t say any­thing more as I wouldn’t want to risk of­fend­ing any­one!” (Search: Crazy Rich Asians)

Kwan’s book, Crazy Rich Asians, has been adapted for a movie with an all-Asian cast, in­clud­ing Yeoh and Gold­ing.
