Kevin Kwan (known for Crazy Rich Asians) has described Sex and Vanity as being very loosely based off of E. M. Forster’s Room with a View, except starring jet-setting Asian people and a modern setting. Lucie Churchill (part Chinese, part Caucasian) sets eyes on George Zao and dislikes him instantly, but she nonetheless ends up struggling to keep him out of her mind and heart.

Sex and Vanity was released in June 2020.

It’s planned as a feature movie.

With Sex and Vanity, he’s once again created a work of magic, crafting a riveting story about love and identity.”
