Praise for IS THERE STILL SEX IN THE CITY?
A BEST BOOK OF THE SUMMER for US WEEKLY, ELLE, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, NEWSDAY, and POPSUGAR
"Calling all Carrie Bradshaw fans: Bushnell returns two decades after Sex and the City with a new book about sex and dating after 50."--US WEEKLY, "Hot Reads"
"Is there still sex in the city? Obviously. But you don't want any dummy telling you about it. Candace Bushnell only. The original!"--ELLE MAGAZINE, "Best Books to read this summer"
"It's hard out there for a cougar. But for Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell, it's exactly the age when women need her the most. Her latest book addresses ...women in their 50s and 60s who suddenly find themselves dating again. As with its predecessor [Sex and the City] there is no shortage of catchphrase-worthy sentiments."--ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, "summer's hottest reads"
"Like its predecessor, it's a dishy report on the friendships and sex lives of New Yorkers, now inescapably middle-aged."--NEWSDAY, "best summer books"
"You know the title. You watched the show. Maybe you even saw
the movies. Candace Bushnell is back doing what she knows best:
chronicling the lives of women and how they find love. This time,
she turns her lens on middle-aged men and women, and the result is
pure magic. At turns wistful and sad, thoughtful and funny, Is
There Still Sex In The City? is even better than the
original."--POPSUGAR, "best new
books to put in your beach bag"
"It's hard out there for a cougar. But for Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell, it's exactly the age when women need her the most.... Her latest book addresses women in their 50s and 60s who suddenly find themselves dating again."--YAHOO ENTERTAINMENT, "summer books preview"
"A collection of commentaries and recounted hijinks (and lojinks)... Sometimes funny, sometimes silly, sometimes quite sad--i.e., an accurate portrait of life in one's 50s." --KIRKUS REVIEWS
Praise for SEX AND THE CITY
"Bushnell [is] the modern flame carrier of an established
literary tradition: that of American (usually New York) women
writers depicting the rigid social and slackening sexual rules of a
very particular American (and, again, usually New York) set through
a mix of close personal knowledge and fiction. Edith Wharton,
Dorothy Parker and Mary McCarthy can all be cited, in varying
degrees, as Bushnell's predecessors, with a bit of Elaine Dundy
thrown in...Compared with the hugely popular television series, the
book is tough, unapologetic and jittery with anxiety.... hilarious,
hard-edged, delightful, harsh, elegant and fun."--THE
"The book that sparked a cultural phenomenon."--OPRAH
"I did not move to New York because I watched Sex and the City.
I moved to New York because I read it...[it is] dark and cynical
and weird....Everyone is mean, and selfish, and complicated, and
many of them are not rich, and most of them have wardrobes that go
unmentioned... All are reported with Bushnell's savvy reporter's
