With her first book, Sex and the City, Candace Bushnell rocketed to international fame offering vivid, uncensored portrayals of romantic intrigues, liaisons, and betrayals among Manhattan's elite. In her new book she returns to the playgrounds of New York's powerful and beautiful -- and again captures the zeitgeist and mores of our era like no other writer. Four Blondes tells the stories of four women caught at crossroads in their lives, facing choices and realizations that will define them forever. Studded with Bushnell's trademark wit and stiletto-heel-sharp insights, it's scandalous, gossipy, and compulsively readable.

Four stories about fairly unlikable, unsympathetic women and their lives. We follow their angst until they finally get to their "over the rainbow." I'm sorry, I just didn't get in to this one. Read full review
