New York Times Best Selling Author Releases New Book, “Is There Still Sex in the City?”
Set between the Upper East Side of Manhattan and a country enclave known as The Village, IS THERE STILL SEX IN THE CITY? follows a cohort of female friends—Sassy, Kitty, Queenie, Tilda Tia, Marilyn, and Candace as they navigate the ever-modernizing world of relationships.
The story is filled with Bushnell’s signature short, sharp, satirical commentaries on the love and dating habits of middle-aged men and women. Throughout, Bushnell documents twenty-first- century dating phenomena such as the “Unintended Cub Situation,” in which a sensible older woman suddenly becomes the love interest of a much younger man; 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, the “Bicycle Boys,” a breed of New York men who were always trying to bring their bikes up to women’s apartments. Once an anomaly, Bushnell charts their new ubiquity, and shows you where and how to do your own man-stalking via bicycle (and whether 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, as well as the very real pressures on women to maintain their youth and have it all. One of the most buzzed about books of the summer—a TV series in the works with Paramount TV and Anonymous Content, with Bushnell as executive producer and writing the pilot—IS THERE STILL SEX IN THE CITY? is a pull-no-punches social commentary and an indispensable companion to one of the most revolutionary dating books of the twentieth century
