      Candace Bushnell : Is There Still Sex in the City?

      On Friday, October 4th at 7:30pm Warwick's will host Candace Bushnell as she discusses and signs her new book, Is There Still Sex in the City?. Candace Bushnell is the critically acclaimed, internationally bestselling author of Sex and the City, Four Blondes, Lipstick Jungle, The Carrie Diaries, One Fifth Avenue, Trading Up, Summer and the City, and Killing Monica. Sex and the City, published in 1996, was the basis for the HBO hit series and two subsequent blockbuster movies. Lipstick Jungle became a popular television series on NBC, as did The Carrie Diaries on the CW. This event is free and open to the public. Reserved Seating is available when the book is pre-ordered from Warwick's for the event. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details.

      Set between the Upper East Side of Manhattan and a country enclave known as The Village, Is There Still Sex in the City? gathers Bushnell’s signature short, sharp, satirical commentaries on the love and dating habits of middle-aged men and women as they continue to navigate the ever-modernizing world of relationships. Throughout, Bushnell documents twenty-first- century dating phenomena such as the “Unintended Cub Situation,” in which a sensible older woman suddenly becomes the love interest of a much younger man; the “Mona Lisa” Treatment—a vaginal restorative surgery often recommended to middle-aged women; and what it’s really like to go on Tinder dates as a fifty-something divorcee. Bushnell also updates one of her most celebrated stories from Sex and the City, about the “Bicycle Boys,” a breed of New York men who were always trying to bring their bikes up to women’s apartments. Once an anomaly, Bushnell charts their new ubiquity, and shows you where and how to do your own man-stalking via bicycle (and whether it’s worth it). Bushnell looks at love and life from all angles—marriage and children, divorce and bereavement, as well as the very real pressures on women to maintain their youth and have it all. This is a pull-no-punches social commentary and an indispensable companion to one of the most revolutionary dating books of the twentieth century.
