Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Doubleday - May 21st, 2024

Kevin Kwan has once again shown that he is the unparalleled master of Austen-esque comedies of manners. His artful use of the ultra elite who we love to hate for their outrageous displays of wealth and privilege, is perfectly balanced by Rufus and Eden--the down to earth, star-crossed childhood friends you just can't help but root for. Lies and Weddings has it all--sexy scandals, hilariously absurd social farces, sharp class commentary, and even a murder! It's everything you want from a Kwan novel and not a single detail disappoints. Pick it up to ogle the designer details, but do stay for the love story that's just brimming with classic romantic tension.
