Candace Bushnell gets personal in her new memoir – an investigation into what happens when a woman of a certain age (ok, let’s call it ‘middle’) finds herself not-so-young, free and single in the city.

MILFs, cougars, love, sex, divorce – Candace’s brilliantly funny and honest first-person account lays bare the truth behind middle-aged romance. Among other revelations we read her Modern Day Cougar Compendium, including guidance on such important matters as the Unexpected Cub Pounce (sometimes the cub does the pouncing); what to do when your age-appropriate date asks you to pay for his kitchen renovation, and the Pluses and Minuses of Being Older and Wiser.


USA Today
Fuelled by chilled rosé, Sex and the City scribe Candace Bushnell is masterfully decoding a new era of single life
You know the title. You watched the show. Maybe you even saw the movies. Candace Bushnell is back doing what she knows best: chronicling the lives of women and how they find love. This time, she turns her lens on middle-aged men and women, and the result is pure magic. At turns wistful and sad, thoughtful and funny, Is There Still Sex In The City? is even better than the original
Viv Groskop, Guardian
Bittersweet, amusing and well observed . . . This is a book about whether we can accept who we are when things don't turn out how we wanted them to
Her funny and honest dispatches from the world of modern dating reveal what love, sex and friendship look like for the middle-aged woman
The effervescent Bushnell still has the ability to make readers laugh with her casually dry one-liners
Katy Waldman, New Yorker
Bushnell's portrayals of the women in her circle somehow feel both forgiving and clinical, with an anthropologist's matter-of-factness... Bushnell wrestles smartly with the theme of aging, with how being a 'fiftysomething' woman is different from being a 'thirtysomething' woman
A collection of commentaries and recounted hijinks (and lojinks)... Sometimes funny, sometimes silly, sometimes quite sad-i.e., an accurate portrait of life in one's 50s
Washington Post
Bushnell's voice is as knowing and sharp as ever
Candace keeps her wits and her wit about her... Bushnell is still plenty edgy, funny, and entertaining
Hamptons Magazine
For legions of fans still under Carrie Bradshaw's spell, the release of Candace Bushnell's latest book is worthy of celebration... The jury may be out on whether there is still sex in the city, but this much is true: Bushnell's literary penchant for what keeps us intrigued never disappoints
As she did in her bestselling Sex and the City, Bushnell examines her own and her friends' experiences with dry wit, delivering sharp social observations about the trials and piquant pleasures of looking for love at a certain age
Greenwich Magazine
Is There Still Sex in the City? delivers a new set of hilarious and heartbreaking truths to its audience - this time about divorce and dating after fifty in a Tinder-hindered world
Rebecca Wallersteiner, The Lady
Fans of Sex and the City will enjoy Candace Bushnell's typically candid, semi-fictionalised, anecdote-rich memoir... Funny, witty and bittersweet
Much like in the original SATC, Bushnell and her friends experience every romantic possibility so we don't have to... Bushnell also touches on poignant aspects of what she calls 'middle-aged madness': the death of a parent, the isolation of divorce, the ache of realizing that even the most gorgeous among us will eventually become invisible
Is there still sex in the city? Obviously. But you don't want any dummy telling you about it. Candace Bushnell only. The original!
New York Times
Sometimes it can be fun to wonder what became of our fictional heroines... That you-gotta-laugh-or-you-cry place is where Candace Bushnell, with her usual sparkling candor, begins Is There Still Sex in the City?
