Synopses & Reviews
Television's sauciest and sexiest program is nothing less than a national phenomenon. Now, after four wildly successful and critically acclaimed seasons, the show's winning formula of sex, glamour, humor, and candor is available in a one-of-a-kind, elegant, and uniquely entertaining hardcover book.
Sex and The City: Kiss and Tell is the ultimate fan bible, offering a comprehensive behind the scenes guide to NYC and its most fabulous foursome -- the friends and boyfriends, the bar rooms and bedrooms, the infatuations and fashions. Packed with information and photos not available anywhere else, it will fascinate and delight its readers with wholly original material from the show's stars, producers, writers, costume designers, and more.
It includes all-access passes to the sets, production offices, and wardrobe closets at the Silvercup studios; an insider's tour of the sets; and a detailed map of the bistros and boutiques where Carrie and friends sip, shop, and seduce. Each of the show's major players are interviewed, offering revealing, intimate biographies and sharing the true life stories that inspire every episode. An elegant, beautiful edition with an exclusive introduction from Sarah Jessica Parker herself, this book is every bit as intoxicating as the pink Cosmopolitans sipped by Carrie and friends at Manhattan's chichest hot spots.
"Those who follow fictional columnist Carrie Bradshaw's every move will revel in Sex and the City: Kiss and Tell....Hundreds of photos fill the pages, while sidebars (such as 'The Rules, by Charlotte York' and a piece on why Carrie wears a tutu during the show's opening sequence) provide further insight into the show's quirks." Publishers Weekly
"In full color, with a light wit and insider's knowledge, the book gets every envious woman (or man) as close to Carrie (or her shoes), Samantha, Charlotte, Miranda, Aidan, and even Steve, as she (or he) is ever likely to get. Although it might not be as coveted as Tom Ford's Marquis bag, it is cheaper and will give readers something to talk about over their cocktails." Library Journal
About the Author
For three years Amy Sohn wrote the "Female Trouble" column in New York Press, which elicited loads of bitter invective from readers and shamed her parents at cocktail parties. Amy writes the "Naked City" column, a series of profiles of Manhattan love lives, which appears every other week (pretty much) in New York magazine. An animated series based on "Female Trouble" (entitled Avenue Amy) is currently running on the Oxygen cable channel. In 1999, Simon & Schuster published Amy's first novel, Run Catch Kiss. It was released in paperback in 2000. She received her B.A. from Brown University. She was born in 1973 and grew up in Brooklyn, where she still lives today.
