Publisher Description

Sex and the City—the original stories that started it all—now available as an eBook!

Sex and the City is a fantastic and sometimes terrifying foray into the hearts, minds, and mating habits of modern-day New Yorkers. Traveling in packs from lavish parties to high-end clubs, Bushnell’s vividly candid characters live out the never-ending search for the perfect relationship. Bushnell’s firsthand commentary on the behavior of the rich and famous is by turns witty and shocking, and always boldly true. In these pages you will meet “Carrie,” the young writer looking for love in all the wrong places; “Samantha Jones,” the successful proto-cougar who approaches sex just like a man; and “Mr. Big,” the captain of industry who jumps from one bed to the next.

Equal parts soap opera, gossip page, sociological study, and dating manual, Sex and the City, Candace Bushnell’s former New York Observer column, has attracted a cult following and been adapted into two major motion pictures and one of the most popular TV series of our time. This is the groundbreaking work that both decoded and shaped a culture and a generation.

Wonderfully Honest

I enjoyed it. I liked the quick pace of the stories. Made me feel as if I were rushing around NYC. It took me a while to appreciate the choppiness of the stories. In real life you don't get the complete picture or the end of the story for some characters and don't expect it here. I liked the epilogue because it put a nice, neat, little bow on top. I had fun comparing this book to the show on HBO. I love them equally in their own right.

A great collection of essays!

Sex and the City is a collection of essays from Bushnell's newspaper column of the same name. Each chapter is its own column, dealing with issues ranging from modelizers to threesomes. Fans of the show will recognize parts of the book, as dialogue from the show was lifted from the book.
The book is a nonfiction collection of essays, so if you're expecting a linear story like some of her other works you might be disappointed.

Sex and the City

HORRIBLE! I expected beautiful writing similar to Elizabeth Gilbert. The writing is terrible. The stories are all over the place. The book is excruciating to get through. Thankfully Candace Bushnell was not tapped to write the HBO series because it would have been a disaster, much like the book. AWFUL!
