Candace Bushnell Book and Novel

Candace Bushnell - Author


Candace Bushnell is the creator of SEX AND THE CITY and has been described by the EVENING STANDARD as a 'genius'. The OBSERVER compared her to Nancy Mitford and the SUNDAY TELEGRAPH to 'Jane Austen with a Martini.'

Below is a Q&A with this author.

I can’t live without… books.

If I wasn’t a writer… I’d want to be an Olympic Dressage Equestrian.

I feel most comfortable in… my own skin. You take yourself wherever you go.

The book I reread the most is… Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton. The main character, Undine Sprague, is wicked and wonderfully unrepentant.

My favorite vintage piece is… a green fringed Michael Kors dress I bought in the late eighties.

The three words that describe me best are: imagination, passion, determination.

The best thing about New York City is… the people. Everyone has a story.

My mantra is: Never have a mantra. Or a favorite color.

The best decision I’ve ever made… was to believe in myself.

The best part about writing The Carrie Diaries was: Writing The Carrie Diaries! I know I’m lucky to have found work I love to do.

If you like Candace Bushnell you might also like to read books by Kathleen Flynn-Hui, Plum Sykes and Sophie Kinsella.
