"Utterly irresistible....I fell in love with Jazzy's fresh, exuberant voice and trenchant wit. In her debut novel, Tan is saying something profound and insightful about the place of women in our globalized, capitalized, interconnected world."--Ruth Ozeki, author of A Tale for the Time Being
"In Singapore, this satirical novel of predatory beauties would be regarded as deeply subversive-for the rest of us, and anyone familiar with the life in that little island city-state, it is hilarious and original."--Paul Theroux
"Scarlett O'Hara would have met her match in Jazeline Lim, the brazen, striving, yet ultimately vulnerable heroine of this bold debut novel."--Julia Glass, National Book Award-winning author of Three Junes
"Wildly original, daring, hilarious, and heartbreaking in equal measure--Sarong Party Girls is written in a unqiue and captivating voice unlike any I've read before. The unforgettable Jazzy will seduce you with her no-holds-barred account of what it's like to be young and female in modern-day Singapore"--John Searles, bestselling author of Help for the Haunted and Strange but True
"Through the insouciant voice of her heroine, Tan delivers a stinging and deliciously subversive critique of Singapore's patriarchal social system. You'll be so busy laughing at Jazzy's outrageous cheek, you won't notice until it's too late that your heart has been broken."--Hillary Jordan, author of When She Woke
"Darkly funny, Sarong Party Girls is one very determined woman's journey through modern Singapore, an intoxicating crossroads of culture, money, and ambition. Her voice is utterly new and engaging, bringing her world to vivid life from the first sentence."--Ayelet Waldman, author of Love and Treasure
