When your sister murders three hundred people, you can't help but wonder why 'Tiffany Tsao's visceral debut...reads a bit like Crazy Rich Asians if the book began with familicide instead of romance" CrimeReads Gwendolyn and Estella are as close as sisters can be. But now Gwendolyn is lying in a coma, the sole survivor after Estella poisons their entire family. As Gwendolyn struggles to regain consciousness, she desperately retraces her memories, trying to uncover the moment that led to such a brutal act. Journeying from the luxurious world of Indonesia's rich and powerful, to the spectacular shows of Paris Fashion Week, and the melting pot of Melbourne's student scene, The Majesties is a haunting novel about the dark secrets that can build a family empire – and bring it crashing down. Tiffany Tsao was born in San Diego, California, and lived in Singapore and Indonesia through her childhood and young adulthood. A graduate of Wellesley College and the University of California Berkeley, where she earned a PhD in English, she has taught and researched literature at Berkeley, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and the University of Newcastle, Australia.

Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season. When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home, long drives to explore the island, and quality time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn't know is that Nick's family home happens to look like a palace, that she'll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia's most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back. Initiated into a world of dynastic splendor beyond imagination, Rachel meets Astrid, the It Girl of Singapore society; Eddie, whose family practically lives in the pages of the Hong Kong socialite magazines; and Eleanor, Nick's formidable mother, a woman who has very strong feelings about who her son should - and should not - marry. Uproarious, addictive and filled with jaw-dropping opulence, Crazy Rich Asians is an insider's look at the Asian jetset, a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money and between Overseas Chinese and Mainland Chinese, and a fabulous novel about what it means to be young, in love and gloriously, crazily rich. 'Crazy Rich Asians is an unputdownably funny, original, modern novel. An outrageous satire of the Asian squillionaire set, this book is like a Chinese Dallas meets Pride and Prejudice. The combination of gold homewares, couture, private jets, absurd social rules and snobbery is utterly hilarious. I actually couldn't put this book down to eat or to watch Downton Abbey.' - Plum Sykes, bestselling author of Bergdorf Blondes

This project analyzes the rhetoric of representation of Asians and the Asian landscape in Crazy Rich Asians (2018). Though this film was marketed and praised as a success for Asian and Asian/American representation in Hollywood, I argue that it is fundamentally a reproduction of Orientalist and White American Hollywood standards and essentializes the Asian identity into a narrow and consumable entity. In order to appeal to its predominantly White female audience, Crazy Rich Asians exoticizes Singapore and the Asian characters to create a narrative of desirability, sometimes at the expense of the Asians themselves. Additionally, the film uses Orientalist tropes, the romantic-comedy and American Dream storylines, visual enthymemes, and traditional Hollywood aesthetics to further the Americanization of the Asian representation. This project highlights the ways in which Crazy Rich Asians perpetuates the narrow racist, classist, and Orientalist narratives around Asians and Asian Americans. Other than presenting Asian bodies, Crazy Rich Asians does little to advance diversity in Hollywood since it exists within these oppressive systems. Ultimately, the film is just a classic White Hollywood movie with Asian bodies and an Asian landscape mapped onto it to add fantasy, escapism, and novelty to the usual cinematic plot of romantic-comedy and drama.
