On her very first morning on the jewel-like island of Capri, Lucie Churchill sets eyes on George Zao and she instantly cant stand him. She cant stand it when he gallantly offers to trade hotel rooms with her so that she can have a view of the Tyrrhenian Sea, she cant stand that he knows more about Casa Malaparte than she does, and she really cant stand it when he kisses her in the darkness of the ancient ruins of a Roman villa and they are caught by her snobbish, disapproving cousin Charlotte. Your mother is Chinese so its no surprise youd be attracted to someone like him, Charlotte teases. The daughter of an American-born Chinese mother and a blue-blooded New York father, Lucie has always sublimated the Asian side of herself in favor of the white side, and she adamantly denies having feelings for George. But several years later, when George unexpectedly appears in East Hampton, where Lucie is weekending with her new fiancé, Lucie finds herself drawn to George again. Soon, Lucie is spinning a web of deceit that involves her family, her fiancé, the co-op board of her Fifth Avenue apartment building, and ultimately herself as she tries mightily to deny George entry into her worldand her heart. 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.
