Read by Lydia Look.
On her very first morning on the jewel-like island of Capri, Lucie Churchill sets eyes on George Zao and she instantly can't stand him. She can't stand it when he gallantly offers to trade hotel rooms with her so that she can have a view of the Tyrrhenian Sea, she can't stand that he knows more about Casa Malaparte than she does, and she really can't stand it when he kisses her in the darkness of the ancient ruins of a Roman villa and they are caught by her snobbish, disapproving cousin Charlotte. The daughter of an American-born Chinese mother and a blue-blooded New York father, Lucie has always sublimated the Asian side of herself in favor of the white side, and she adamantly denies having feelings for George. But several years later, when George unexpectedly appears in East Hampton, where Lucie is weekending with her new fiancé, Lucie finds herself drawn to George again.

Following the Ã¼ber-success of his three-part Crazy Rich Asians, Kwan returns with another over-the-top bestseller, this time contemporizing and diversifying E.M. Forster's A Room with a View. Look, narrator for previous Kwan titles, ushers the characters through a (practically) royal East/West wedding in Capri, then a summer in the Hamptons five years later. Joining the two parts is the expectedly complicated love story of Lucie Tang Churchill, a hapa New Yorker with Mayflower roots, and George Zao, an unbearably wealthy Hong Kong Australian architect. With unflagging energy, Look embodies Sex and Vanity, no holds barred. Consistency is not her forteâ Lucie is no New Yorker, George's Aussie lilt wanders, Cecil's Texan accent overtwangsâbut what Look lacks in accuracy, she convincingly compensates with infectious stamina, irresistibly unveiling the eye-rolling shenanigans of Kwan's crazy rich everyone. Hold your judgments, howeverâby book's end, only those who eschew social media and disdain public opinion will get the fairy tale ending beginning. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
