Is There Still Sex in the City? By Candace Bushnell. Sometimes it can be fun to wonder what became of our fictional heroines.
With style emulated by millions of women, Carrie Bradshaw has become the fashion icon of our day. Nearly half of this book is devoted to showcasing and detailing the wardrobe and accessories worn by the women in the movie. As a complete guide to Sex and the City 2the book is also filled with exclusive plot details, interviews with cast and crew, and never-before-told stories about the making of the film.
A Sex and the City follow-up series is in the works, based on a new novel by author Candace Bushnell which focuses on the love lives of women in their 50s and 60s. But, fans of the original series will be disappointed to learn that it will not follow the adventures of Carrie Bradshaw and co. The success of the show spawned two spin-off films, released in andand prequel series The Carrie Diaries, which aired on The CW.
But for every welcome moment of vulnerability — she addresses with unvarnished honesty all the ways that society tends to erase a woman over 50 without a partner — there are odd digressions that feel dragged too soon from the drafts folder: meandering thoughts on five-figure face creams, errant houseguests, and, perhaps inevitably, shopping for shoes. Her first study, a young North Dakota waitress named Maggie Wilken, is the only one without a pseudonym — and maybe not coincidentally, the one who ends up feeling most central to the narrative. He did not have that kind of charm.

In the early 90s, Candace Bushnell was a thirtysomething woman in New York who, according to her friend Jay McInerney himself no party slouch"was doing advanced postgraduate work in the subject of going out on the town". She didn't have to sleep on foam for much longer. The columns shimmered with in-the-know details about a very particular Manhattan set, such as men who worry about which interior decorator to hire for their private jet and women who install CCTV cameras to spy on their child's nanny.
The author speaks to Olivia Petter about feminism, dating in your fifties, and why Sarah Jessica Parker is the antithesis to Carrie Bradshaw. The last offering, Sex and the City 2came out almost a decade ago, but rumours of sequels still swirl, alleged feuds between castmates make headlines, and, as Bushnell pointed out, those Instagram accounts are flourishing. But real life was where it began. The HBO programme, which ran from towas praised for its depiction of its female characters as strong and unhampered, paving the way for the likes of Girls and Fleabag.
