Reviews

Delightful ... complete with designer outfits, glamorous parties, and exotic locations. * Independent BEST BOOKS OF 2020 *
Sex and Vanity scores high on all intended fronts; the opening half, set in Capri, is bathed in sunshine and sexual tension. The novel reads like travel porn, listing the island's best and lesser-known sights, places to eat, stay and drink. And then there is the story of Lucie Tang Churchill, a biracial New York princess from the Upper East Side, attending an eye-wateringly extravagant wedding. * Guardian *
Sex and Vanity is basically your PERFECT SUMMER READ. Set in Capri, New York & the Hamptons, the location descriptions are so evocative you will feel like you're there. The characters bounce around the globe engaging in pretty much the binary opposite of social distancing so a double win for this delicious, delightful romp. -- Sara Lawrence * Daily Mail *
This satirical romp through the gilded lives of the international super-rich is laugh-out-loud funny, with all the crackle you'd expect from the author of Crazy Rich Asians, plus a tender love story at its heart. * Sunday Mirror *
Effervescent, grand cru escapism. All the playful Kwan hallmarks are present and correct. Sex and Vanity may poke plenty of fun at the moral iniquities of the impossibly wealthy but it's also astute on the racism that can exist within Asian families as well as without. * Metro *
