In the early 90s, Candace Bushnell was a thirtysomething woman in New York who, according to her friend Jay McInerney himself no party slouch , "was doing advanced postgraduate work in the subject of going out on the town". She didn't have to sleep on foam for much longer. The columns shimmered with in-the-know details about a very particular Manhattan set, such as men who worry about which interior decorator to hire for their private jet and women who install CCTV cameras to spy on their child's nanny.
What was Carrie Bradshaw like before Sex and the City? It's a classic tale. But that story backs up to senior year in high school, when you begin to want more and begin to wonder if you want to stay in your hometown, or go off to college. That got me thinking about Carrie as a senior and wondering what she was like then. While Bushnell, like Carrie, grew up in a small Connecticut town, she says that events of Carrie's senior year are entirely fictional, though she did draw from her own emotional experiences. It's really about the emotions of being that age. Perhaps the novel's strongest parallel to Bushnell's own life is Carrie's devotion to writing.
