Sex and the City by Candace Bushnell, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®

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. One of the great things about middle age is that most people become a tiny bit nicer and more forgiving. Like how a life that looks fine on the outside can feel lousy on the inside. 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.

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.

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.
