Five Star Billionaire

by Tash Aw
£8.99   paperback  HarperCollins Publishers (2014)

Five Star Billionaire by Tash Aw Longlisted for the 2013 Man Booker Prize, the overlapping lives of five newcomers to China’s most dynamic city are the subject of this kaleidoscopic novel.
 
Welcome to Shanghai. A restless metropolis where old traditions collide with new ambitions – a place where anything can happen and anyone can become Somebody.
 
Golddigger, property magnate, pop star, entrepreneur and guru: five newcomers are lured by the promise of making fortunes and remaking identities. But they find their lives converging in unpredictable ways, as the Five Star Billionaire’s lessons for success wreak havoc. For in a land where dreams may come true, nothing is ever quite as it seems...

"Aw's tale of five migrant workers carving out lives in a modernising Shanghai is the stuff of a hit TV miniseries … the reading experience it offers is coolly engrossing."
(Adam Mars-Jones, Observer)
