I Couldn’t Help But Wonder …

Emma Lewis, Chantel de Sousa


“You’re such a Miranda!” Few TV shows have permeated the zeitgeist so deeply that their characters become personality archetypes. But Sex and the City did. The HBO hit, based on Candace Bushnell’s book of the same name, first aired in 1998. Yes, it’s drawn criticism in recent years for its lack of political correctness, but 22 years ago, Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda were pushing the envelope. And that envelope surely needed a push.
In this unofficial fan’s guide, you can pass the New York Bar Exam with a bit of help from Miranda Hobbes. Get very, very sex positive with Samantha Jones. Hear the latest gossip on the city’s art scene with Charlotte York. And learn some innovative places to store your Manolo heels around the house, with advice from Carrie Bradshaw. As well as the absurd fan fiction-y elements above, this book includes Sex and the City season overviews, top episode guides, cast profiles and more.
