Kevin Kwan in Conversation with Holly Firfer

Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at 8:00 pm

A virtual discussion with iconic author Kevin Kwan, in conversation with journalist Holly Firfer, on his new novel, Sex and Vanity.

This program is a partnership of the JCC Consortium and the Book Fest in Your Living Room series. Books provided in partnership with the Ivy Bookshop.

About the Author:
Kevin Kwan is the author of the international bestsellers Crazy Rich Asians, China Rich Girlfriend, and Rich People Problems. Crazy Rich Asians was a #1 New York Times bestseller, a major motion picture, and has been translated into more than thirty languages. He lives in Los Angeles and is trying to eat less pasta.

About the Book:
A Good Morning America Book Club pick! The iconic author of the bestselling phenomenon Crazy Rich Asians returns with Sex and Vanity, the glittering tale of a young woman who finds herself torn between two men: the fiancĂ© of her family's dreams and the man she is desperately trying to avoid falling in love with. 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.
