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.
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.
