Candace Bushnell is the author of the popular best seller “Sex and the City,” which spawned the HBO hit series starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Candace Bushnell captured the country`s attention by breaking down the bedroom doors of New York`s rich and beautiful and exposing the true story of sex, love and relationships today. Dubbed “the Sharon Stone of journalism,” Bushnell first put the singles scene into print as The New York Observer`s resident “Sex and the City” columnist. Her writing introduced the nation to “modelizers”-men who only date models, the far more common “toxic bachelors,” and the women who are looking for Mr. Big as they glide in and out of the star-studded Bowery Bar scene. Bushnell`s semi-toxic tales — or “the underside of glamour,” as she refers to her subject matter — were collected in her best-selling book “Sex and the City.” In her efforts to get to the heart of her stories, Bushnell has been known to conduct some unusual journalistic research, including interviewing a male Calvin Klein underwear model in bed and venturing to upper-class suburbs to ask married women about their sex lives.
Jennifer Weiner made her sensational debut with The New York Times best seller “Good in Bed,” the story of a smart, witty plus-size pop-culture journalist whose ex-boyfriend chronicles their ex-sex life on the pages of a top-selling women`s magazine. The following year, Weiner turned her attention to the love/hate affairs of sisterhood in her second novel, “In Her Shoes,” which instantly became a best seller and rose to number eight on The New York Times best-seller list. Audiences around the world saw “In Her Shoes” come to life when the film version was released by Twentieth Century Fox in October 2005, starring Cameron Diaz, Toni Collette and Shirley MacLaine.
