Inquisitive tourists, nostalgic expats and American Anglophiles all converge at Tea & Sympathy, a jam-packed, British-themed restaurant in New York's West Village. Imagine a Carry On movie transplanted to downtown Manhattan. "This is the only place in the city serving colonial-style English food," says Kevin Kwan, a Singaporean-American novelist who has chosen it for our lunch. On any given day, the eatery's tiny dining room overflows with multicoloured teapots, regal memorabilia and voluble patrons gabbing loudly. "You hear the most bizarre conversations," says Kwan. The restaurant is so meaningful to Kwan, who resides on a cobblestone street nearby, that he set the opening chapter of his best-selling 2013 book, Crazy Rich Asians , here. That rollicking volume, which bitingly depicted the lives of mega-wealthy Chinese, has been translated into twelve languages, and is being adapted into a Hollywood movie. Now, Kwan has penned a sequel, China Rich Girlfriend , which raises the stakes even further. "Snobbery and the motivation behind it fascinates me," says Kwan, who has arguably spawned his own literary genre, a Far Eastern mash-up of Trollope, Austen and Gossip Girl. "To me it's ridiculous that people would be judged based on how old their money is or who their parents are. In China Rich Girlfriend , just published here by Allen & Unwin, the narrative is fuelled by the rivalry between the old guard and the nouveau riche, between overseas Chinese and mainlanders, and between different ethnicities. Chinese Americans, for instance, are derisively referred to as "bananas". Kwan portrays a dizzyingly sybaritic world of Paris shopping blitzes, customised Boeing jets and lavish apartments with glass elevators for cars. One imperious matriarch has a room of her home reserved for Birkin bags by Hermès, while another gatecrashes her son's wedding rehearsal in a helicopter, imbuing the term "helicopter parenting" with delectable new meaning. It's a comedy of bad manners, a look at the lifestyles of the rich and fatuous in Singapore, China, Hong Kong and beyond. What the West doesn't know "One of the reasons I wrote this book was because there was such a disconnect in what I was reading in the papers and this giant abyss of nothing in bookstores," Kwan says, sipping a glass of English lemonade. In the United States, he says, it was more common to discover gloomy accounts of Asian Americans struggling to assimilate, or historical polemics "about mothers having to abandon babies under trees". "No one writing about the Asia I knew," he continues. You have the biggest wealth creation in the history of the world taking place and all the West knows about it are these economic reports, and the occasional story about corrupt politicians. "But nothing about what it's really like to be in these families, to have the baggage of all this money, and the dynastic struggles that come with it. ". In the new book, Kwan gleefully describes his label-lusting characters as "weapons of mass... com - including alligator shoes, a Marchesa gown and a personal submarine. In person, in contrast, he is garbed in the manner of a New York creative: tailored jacket, button-down shirt, white jeans, leather shoes - and not a logo in sight. "They don't know what to make of me in China since I never wear anything identifiable," he says, reaching for a jar of Colman's mustard. The author ordered the assorted finger sandwiches, including ham, tuna and egg salad, while this reporter sampled a prawn salad. Kwan's grey linen shirt is custom-made by a tailor in Anacapri, Italy, and his square-shaped watch is a collectible timepiece by Jaeger-LeCoultre. When documenting Asia's crazy-rich denizens, does Kwan consider himself an insider or an outsider. "I've been an outsider from the moment I left Singapore," he says. That occurred at the age of 11, when, along with his parents and two brothers, he relocated to Houston, Texas. Kwan excelled at school, and then at creative writing at the University of Houston, and found himself on the fast track for academia. Instead, in 1995, he enrolled at Parsons School of Design in New York and reinvented his career. Five years later he established his own design agency, with high-profile clients including Ted. com, The Museum of Modern Art, and Oprah Winfrey. "In a strange way I had to be in the design.
