Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Intriguing and highly entertaining.” Helen Fielding, New York Times bestselling author of Bridget Jones’ Diary
“Imagine Jane Austen with a martini or perhaps Jonathan Swift on rollerblades.” Sunday Telegraph
“Imagine the Sun edited by Jane Austen…Hilarious…A compulsively readable book, served on bite-sized chunks of irrepressible irreverence.” Marie Claire
“The media celebrities! The heartbreak! The strappy sandals! This bumptious collection of Candace Bushnell’s ‘Sex and the City’ columns from the New York Observer provides a prime banquette seat to witness the intense and rather frightening mating rituals of the attractive, successful, over-thirty-five-and-still-unmarried set…It becomes a kind of serial novel that works as both a comedy of manners and a class study of the current Age of Non-Innocence…Juicy, fast-reading pieces.” Salon
“Reading like a society novel gone downtown and askew, Sex and the City is a comically sordid look at status and ambition and the many characters consumed by the sexual politics of the 90s.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Often funny…this is an inside account of the quintessential ’90s romance and the never-ending search for the perfect marriage partner in high society.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“A collection of Bushnell’s punchy, archly knowing, and sharply observed sex columns from the New York Observer…Brain candy that will appeal equally to urban romantics and anti-romantics.” Publishers Weekly
“Fascinating and haunting insights into the love lives of the rich and randy in New York. Bushnell has gleaned pieces from her popular New York Observer column and combined them into an oddly touching collection…This is a captivating look at the Age of Un-Innocence, in a city in which the glittering diversions don’t quite make up for the fact that ‘Cupid has flown the coop.’” Kirkus Reviews
“Bushnell extracts some gems from her ‘Sex and the City’ column in the New York Observer, which has a devoted following.” Library Journal
