The new from Candace Bushnell, full of her trademark wit and style
Compared by the Observer to Nancy Mitford and by the Sunday Telegraph to 'Jane Austen with a Martini', Candace Bushnell is the critically acclaimed, international best-selling novelist whose first book, Sex and the City, published in 1996, was the basis for the HBO hit series. Bushnell captured the country's attention with Sex and the City by breaking down the bedroom doors of New York City's rich and beautiful to expose true contemporary stories of sex, love and relationships.
Sex and the City is not Tolstoy (thank God.) But it is not cute either. It is hilarious, hard-edged, delightful, harsh, elegant and fun. You might not have a boyfriend who gives you white mink coats, and perhaps you don't flirt with Hollywood stars in Aspen, and maybe you've never even been to "one of those parties that should be in a movie". But Sex and the City captures a certain essence of what being a single woman is still all about. - Hadley Freeman, GuardianEvery woman can find something relatable in Sex and the City.
