Summer and the City

Books by Candace Bushnell

Carrie Bradshaw’s intro to NYC is the perfect fun summer read.

It’s the young adult version of Sex and the City, but Candace Bushnell stays true enough to her adult writing style and the beloved character of Carrie – even at the tender age of 17 – to make the book as engaging as any of her other works. We skipped out on The Carrie Diaries, which found Carrie in high school, but were totally enthralled by Carrie’s introduction to New York’s art and literary scene through her summer creative writing class at The New School and other adventures in Summer and the City.

We love Candace Bushnell for the same reason we love Jane Austen and Edith Wharton: her insight into romance and society. It’s great fun to get wrapped up in the stories of her working women, always somewhat based on people in her own circles and her own experiences. Our other favorites include Four Blondes, Trading Up and One Fifth Avenue.
