This book has been called “a globalized version of the Great Gatsby” and was a NYT Notable book from 2013. It’s both a page-turner and a thought-provoker.
How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia is a striking slice of contemporary life at a time of crushing upheaval. Romantic without being sentimental, political without being didactic, and spiritual without being religious, it brings an unflinching gaze to the violence and hope it depicts. And it creates two unforgettable characters who find moments of transcendent intimacy in the midst of shattering change.Buy it at A/iB/BN/K
