Sex and the City by Candace Bushnell

Please refresh the page and retry. Candace Bushnell has returned to what transformed her from skint journalist to an author as monied as the people she immortalised. Is There Still Sex in the City? In it, Bushnell continues the quest that made her name: sex, marriage, and whether people are embarking on either. Bushnell, now 60 but looking at least 15 years younger has been married and, like those pitiable women in her first book, moved to Connecticut We urge you to turn off your ad blocker for The Telegraph website so that you can continue to access our quality content in the future.

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. And Bushnell, despite her financial straits, was absolutely part of this set. Oh yeah — one of those!

Or are we just kidding ourselves? This book is not quite what it seems. And that turns out to be a pleasant surprise. There is very little sex in this book or in the lives of the fiftysomething single women depicted , but there is a lot of chat among seemingly wealthy women about not having enough money as they approach a retirement that will probably never arrive; about feeling lonely and friendless; about struggling with envy for the lives of others; and about coming to terms with the cruelty of the ageing process. Fun times, guys!
