Sex and the City Quotes

The book offers a pull-no-punches social commentary on love and life among the middle-aged, from angles that include relationships , marriage, children, divorce and bereavement, as well as the pressure women face to maintain their youth and have it all.

And how bad stuff is going to happen to you, no matter how hard you try to be perfect. My love affair with the city had started to unravel around the time my dog dropped dead outside the mews near Washington Square Park. A cocker spaniel killed him. The dog had planted its feet and was growling.

At the time, in the early s, I was in my late twenties. I even recall a one-month hippie phase with faded jeans, fringed belts, and off-the-shoulder peasant shirts that I thought were particularly cool to wear to literary readings in dark downtown bars. Very Joan Didion. I lead with the clothes because Sex and the City demonstrated how much they can mean. They indicated, for me, that so much was wrong, but that something right wanted to emerge. I was trying on selves. I was searching for an identity beyond what my upbringing in the Chicago suburbs, as the child of a dad who went to an office every day and a mom who stayed home with my younger brother and sister and me, presented as my ready-to-wear options: girlfriend, wife, or mother.
