'Intriguing and highly entertaining' Helen Fielding, 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 'Irresistable, hilarious and horrific, stylishly written. You might be appalled but anyone who lives here will recognise that Candace Bushnell has captured the big black truth. The only people who won't succumb to the book's very real charms are the ones in it and they'll probably be too preoccupied trying to figure out who's who.' Bret Easton Ellis 'Punchy, archly knowing and sharply observed...Bushnell offers a brash, radically unromantic perspective...the effect is that of an Armistead Maupin-like canvas tinged with a liberal smattering of Judith Krantz...these essay are brain candy that will appeal equally to urban romantics and unromantics.' PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY 'Fascinating and haunting insights into the love lives of the rich and randy in New York...An oddly touching collection...with the detached grace of an early Didion...Often funny and occasionally bleak, 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's canape-sized bites of Manhattan life stylishly capture a clubbing and dating scene...' INDEPENDENT
