Sex and Vanity

Kevin Kwan

Kevin Kwan—iconic author of the bestselling phenomenon Crazy Rich Asians and a Time Magazine 100 Most Influential People in the World—returns with a glittering tale of love and longing as a young woman finds herself torn between two worlds: the WASP establishment of her father’s family and George Zao, a man she is desperately trying to avoid falling in love with. Soon, Lucy is spinning a web of deceit that involves her family, her fiancé, the co-op board of her Fifth Avenue apartment, and ultimately herself. Moving between summer playgrounds of privilege, peppered with decadent food and extravagant fashion, Sex and Vanity is a truly modern love story, a daring homage to A Room with a View, and a brilliantly funny comedy of manners set between two cultures.
