9780349119540: One Fifth Avenue

"ONE FIFTH AVENUE is a modern comedy of manners -- a landmark novel, if you like. Its observations about money, the Internet, the function of art in society as wellas sex romps, social climbing and snobbery enhance Bushnell's reputation as an astute observer of modern life....Carrie Bradshaw wannabes as well as women (and men) near Bushnell's age -- she turns 50 this year -- will be pulled into this refreshing and highly entertaining novel about the power of money, sex and celebrity."
--USA TODAY

"Bushnell...broadens her scope in her latest ode to New York strivers and sophisticates...The fun lies in the author's acute observations about everything from real estate envy to midlife crises."
--More

"Where [Bushnell] goes, her army of stilletoed fans follow. You gotta love it: the conflict, the secrets-telling, the peek into the world of the rich and valueless. It all adds up to a juicy summer read."
--New York Post

"One Fifth Avenue is all things an escapist read she be: quick and wicked and wry. There's a blown-out bitch to root against, a star-crossed couple to root for, and a Tim Gunn-style best friend who deserves his own book. Great, guiltless fun."
--Entertainment Weekly

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
