Texas Book Festival alum Kevin Kwan returns with new book Sex and Vanity, a retelling of E. M. Forster’s Room with a View updated for the modern era. Set on the luxurious island of Capri, the novel stars Lucie Churchill, who’s always ignored her Chinese-American mother’s culture in favor of her white New Yorker father’s. That doesn’t change when she meets hunky, infuriating George Zao—at least, not at first. Join the discussion as Kwan talks romance, identity, and riches.
