About the Author

C. K. Chau is a Chinese American writer based in New York City. She holds a master's degree in English literature from Hunter College. When she isn't writing, she likes to watch old films and daydream about her next meal. Her writing has previously appeared in Sun-Struck Magazine and Bright Wall/Dark Room, among others, under another name.


"The reimagining I've been waiting all my life for. With snappy banter and a lot of heart, Chau weaves a surprising new tale from a classic love story. Jane would have been proud."
-- Carolyn Huynh, bestselling author of The Fortunes of Jaded Women

"OG Pride and Prejudice fans will delight in the nuanced characters, frantic social climbing, and stealth feminism inspired by the Austen classic, but the steamy romance, witty cultural takedowns, and street-smart humor in this contemporary update are fresh, timely, and entirely Chau's." -- Courtney Maum, New York Times bestselling author of I AM HAVING SO MUCH FUN HERE WITHOUT YOU, COSTALEGRE, TOUCH, and THE YEAR OF THE HORSES

"Chau's witty and entertaining debut puts a contemporary spin on Pride and Prejudice in New York City's Chinatown....With sharp dialogue, a vibrant backdrop, smart explorations of gentrification and family duty, and, above all, an endearing central romance, this should win Chau many fans." -- Publishers Weekly

"Jane Austen fans should enjoy this, especially those who like modern, multicultural reimaginings of her novels, such as Sonali Dev's Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors and Uzma Jalaluddin's Ayesha at Last." -- Library Journal

"Readers looking for a new, entertaining, and contemporary perspective on Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice will be thrilled with Chau's debut. Each of the key characters displays their strengths, weaknesses, and sense of humor as they confront cultural expectations of older and younger generations of Asian Americans, while also embracing current views on education and employment and navigating relationships. Janeites will love the creativity of Chau's updated approach, and fans of romantic comedies will want to see this as their next favorite television series."
-- Booklist

"Filled with lovable characters and laugh-out-loud moments." -- Woman's World Magazine

"C.K. Chau's fresh take on a centuries-old story brings Pride and Prejudice to early 2000s New York City Chinatown." -- NPR

"A must-read for Janeites." -- Parade
