In her newest novel, 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.
