9781401341404: One Fifth Avenue

From one of the most consistently astute and engaging social commentators of our day comes another look at the tough and tender women of New York City--this time, through the lens of where they live.

One Fifth Avenue, the Art Deco beauty towering over one of Manhattan's oldest and most historically hip neighborhoods, is a one-of-a-kind address, the sort of building you have to earn your way into--one way or another. For the women in Candace Bushnell's new novel, One Fifth Avenue, this edifice is essential to the lives they've carefully established--or hope to establish. From the hedge fund king's wife to the aging gossip columnist to the free-spirited actress (a recent refugee from L.A.), each person's game plan for a rich life comes together under the soaring roof of this landmark building.

Acutely observed and mercilessly witty, One Fifth Avenue is a modern-day story of old and new money, that same combustible mix that Edith Wharton mastered in her novels about New York's Gilded Age and F. Scott Fitzgerald illuminated in his Jazz Age tales. Many decades later, Bushnell's New Yorkers suffer the same passions as those fictional Manhattanites from eras past: They thirst for power, for social prominence, and for marriages that are successful--at least to the public eye. But Bushnell is an original, and One Fifth Avenue is so fresh that it reads as if sexual politics, real estate theft, and fortunes lost in a day have never happened before.

From Sex and the City through four successive novels, Bushnell has revealed a gift for tapping into the zeitgeist of any New York minute and, as one critic put it, staying uncannily "just the slightest bit ahead of the curve." And with each book, she has deepened her range, but with a light touch that makes her complex literary accomplishments look easy. Her stories progress so nimbly and ring so true that it can seem as if anyone might write them--when, in fact, no one writes novels quite like Candace Bushnell. Fortunately for us, with One Fifth Avenue, she has done it again.

About the Author :

Candace Bushnell is the critically acclaimed and best-selling author of Sex and the City, Four Blondes, Trading Up, and Lipstick Jungle. Her first book, Sex and the City, was the basis for the HBO hit television show and movie. Her fourth book, Lipstick Jungle, was a drama on NBC and she was an active producer on that show. Bushnell is also the host of Sex, Success and Sensibility, a live radio show on Sirius Stars. She lives in New York City.

From AudioFile :

This is SEX AND THE CITY--for seniors. One Fifth Avenue is the ultimate NYC address, so when its 7,000-square-foot penthouse becomes vacant--through the bizarre death of its nearly 100-year-old owner--the tenants, present, future, and past, clamor for the space. However, even a narrator as skilled as Donna Murphy can't keep all the voices straight. But shifting from pathos to bitchiness to mirth, Murphy tries to capture them all. Best moment--the vulgar, drunken wake. Best character--Lola Fabricant, an Atlanta gold digger who strives to be Carrie Bradshaw of SEX AND THE CITY. This is worth a listen while doing meaningless chores but not something that will linger long in the mind. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine

Description du livre Hyperion. Paperback / softback. État : new. BRAND NEW, One Fifth Avenue, Candace Bushnell, One Fifth Avenue is The Building--the chicest, the hottest, the best pedigreed, with all the most interesting people. It's the One to Get Into. Within its pre-war walls the lives of New York City's cultural elite play out: from an over-40 actress whose comeback proves that women of style are truly ageless, to the spoiled and confident recent college grad whose mother expects to find the right man to launch her daughter into high society, to the grande-dame gossip columnist who's seen it all. As in her previous books, Candace Bushnell turns her eagle eye on the social and sexual politics of New Yorkers in an era when any kind of fame is like hard currency, and you are where you live.
