25 years ago this week a new series premiered on HBO. It was based on the cloumns written by a journalist named Candace Bushnell. She called it Sex And The City.
Bushnell had a lifelong ambition to be a successful novelist. So when I met her, in 2003, she had actually just written her first novel. The heroine of the book Trading Up was a young woman, not unlike the characters we met in Sex And The City.
And much like Sex And The City, the characters in Trading Up must ask difficult questions.
So here now, from 2003, Candace Bushnell.
Candace Bushnell is now 64, and lives in New York.
