About this item
The iconic author of the bestselling phenomenon Crazy Rich Asians returns with a glittering tale of love and money as a young woman finds herself torn between two worlds—the WASP establishment of her father’s family and George Zhao, a man she is desperately trying to avoid falling in love with. On her very first morning on the jewel-like island of Capri, Lucy Churchill sets eyes on George Zhao and she instantly can’t stand him. She can’t stand it when he gallantly offers to trade hotel rooms with her so that she can have the view of the Tyrrhenian Sea, she can’t stand that he knows more about Curzio Malaparte than she does, and she really can’t stand it when he kisses her in the darkness of the ancient Matermania cave and they are caught by her snobbish, disapproving cousin, Charlotte. “Your mother is Chinese so it’s no surprise you’d be attracted to someone like him,” Charlotte teases. Daughter of an American-born- Chinese mother and blue-blooded New York father, Lucy has always sublimated the Asian side of herself in favor of the WASP establishment world, and she adamantly denies having feelings for George. But three years later, when George unexpectedly appears at a tennis match in East Hampton where Lucy is cheering on her new fiancé, Lucy can’t help but kiss George again. Soon, Lucy finds herself spinning a web of deceit that involves her family, her fiancé, the co-op board of her Park Avenue apartment, and ultimately herself as she tries mightily to deny George entry into her world—and her heart. Moving between summer playgrounds of privilege, peppered with decadent food and extravagant fashion, Sex and Vanity is a totally modern love story and brilliantly funny comedy of manners set between two cultures.
