Enter a world where the sometimes shocking and often hilarious mating habits of the privileged are exposed by a true insider. In essays drawn from her witty and sometimes brutally candid column in the New York Observer, Candace Bushnell introduces us to the young and beautiful who travel in packs from parties to bars to clubs. Meet "Carrie," the quintessential young writer looking for love in all the wrong places..."Mr. Big," the business tycoon who drifts from one relationship to another..."Samantha Jones," the fortyish, successful, "testosterone woman" who uses sex like a man.
"Sly...Sharp...Sex And The City Succeeds."
"It has the ring of truth...sums up the fast-lane Manhattan mind-set with considerable flair."
-Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World
"A breath of fresh air...A forceful display of the merits of the journalistic approach to sexual relations...a realism that rivals Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities."
-Wall Street Journal
"[Bushnell] is an arch and knowing observer of her Chateau-Latour-imbibing universe."
"Fun...Bushnell is a skilled eavesdropper and a bright stylist revealing to us the soft underbelly of high society."
"Striking...amusing vignettes from the penthouses of Manhattan...where women spend days packing designer G-strings in tissue, and men scour the slopes of Aspen in search of the 'right decorator' for their private jets...Welcome to the world of New York's cultural elite."
