From her arrival in New York City alone with $20 in her pocket, to working her way up the ladder, to secrets behind the creation of SEX AND THE CITY and finding herself single again in her 50’s ... the always provocative Candace Bushnell shares her fabulous philosophy through stories of fashion, literature, sex, and New York City, while pouring Cosmos in Manolos.
“Through her books and television series, Candace Bushnell’s work has influenced and defined two generations of women. Her story is a witty, wise, entertaining look at sex, dating and friendship in New York City at the age of fifty. We invite audiences to meet the “real Carrie Bradshaw”.
says Hazel Feldman, from Showtime Management.
