If your summer needs an injection of glitz, glamour and humour, stop everything and pick up this series. Though this is the 3rd in the series, I'm happy to report that the books stand alone beautifully; if you doubt you'll ever read *Crazy Rich Asians* or *China Rich Girlfriend*, go ahead and dive straight into this one.
Rich People Problems follows a many-branched family whose failing matriarch is slated to leave behind an estate in Singapore worth billions. Various family members are dragged through screamingly funny indignities - and some actual drama - in the race to capture Tyersall Park. Through it all, the prose is sumptuously, snarkily slathered with all the biggest brand names and designers, most glamorous hotels, and all the most ridiculous trappings of the lives of the super-rich. Honestly, this is the most literary fun you can have in hardcover. Grab a cold glass of pinot, put your feet up on your lounge chair, dig in, and indulge your schadenfreude.
