“In her sharp and realistic new explorations of the modern 21st century woman, Bushnell maintains the voice and wry musings she brought to life with Carrie Bradshaw. But, these are not just any 21st century women. We are offered a peek into the lives of the 50-something woman that we met as a 30-somethings in the original Sex & The City. The landscape and slang for friendships and relationships has changed, but Bushnell shows us that age doesn’t take away the opportunities for adventure and fun once you’ve arrived at the heart of middle age. With moments ranging from heart-breaking to laugh out loud hilarious, you will devour these insightful essays and vignettes.”Cori, Bright Side Bookshop
Set between the Upper East Side of Manhattan and a country enclave known as The Village, Is There Still Sex in the City? gathers Bushnell’s signature short, sharp, satirical commentaries on the love and dating habits of middle-aged men and women as they continue to navigate the ever-modernizing world of relationships. Throughout, Bushnell documents 21st century dating phenomenon, such as the “Unintended Cub Situation” in which a sensible older woman suddenly becomes the love interest of a much younger man, the “Mona Lisa” Treatment—a vaginal restorative surgery often recommended to middle-aged women, and what it’s really like to go on Tinder dates as a fifty-something divorcee. Bushnell also updates one of her most celebrated stories from Sex and the City, “The Bicycle Boys,” which is about a breed of New York men who are always trying to bring their bikes up to women’s apartments. Once an anomaly, Bushnell charts their new ubiquity, in addition to where and how to do your own man stalking via bicycle (and whether or not it’s worth it). In Is There Still Sex in The City?, Bushnell looks at love and life from all angles—marriage and children, divorce and bereavement, and the very real pressures women face to maintain their youth and have it all. This is a pull-no-punches social commentary and an indispensable companion to one of the most revolutionary dating books of the twentieth century.
