Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan returns with an outrageously funny comedy of manners set between two cultures and two breathtaking locales. Peppered with his trademark wit and exuberant love of language, Sex and Vanity is a truly modern love story and uproarious exploration of Asian-American and WASP identity. Join Kwan for a lively discussion about how he made Hollywood history, and the joy of interrogating and celebrating the ultrawealthy.

Penulis Crazy Rich Asians, Kevin Kwan kembali dengan komedi yang memperlihatkan perilaku yang sangat lucu, berlatar di antara dua budaya dan dua tempat yang menakjubkan. Dibumbui dengan ciri khasnya dan kecintaannya pada bahasa, Sex and Vanity adalah sebuah kisah cinta yang sebenarnya dan eksplorasi penuh seputar identitas Asia-Amerika dan WASP. Bergabunglah dengan Kwan untuk berdiskusi tentang bagaimana ia membuat sejarah Hollywood, juga kegembiraan dalam menginterogasi dan merayakan orang yang benar-benar kaya.
