When the movie Crazy Rich Asians was released 2 years ago, a lot was riding on its success.

It was the first film with an all east-asian cast in 25 years, so the pressure was on to make it into a major hit.

The movie, based on the book trilogy by Kevin Kwan, became the highest grossing romantic comedy in more than a decade.

Kevin Kwan’s now started another book series with Sex and Vanity, a love triangle featuring Lucy, the daughter of an american-born Chinese mother and a blue-blooded New York father.

Kevin Kwan joined Mike Yardley to talk about his new book.
