So eben konnte ich bei Tauschticket die US-Version von Candace Bushnells „The Carrie Dairies“ ergattern – und habe gleich im Anschluss noch eine Vorbestellung bei der Buchhandlung meines Vertrauens getätigt. Denn die Geschichte von Carrie Bradshaws Weg zur Top-Kolumnistin geht weiter: Am 26. April (Hardcover) bzw. 1. Mai (Taschenbuch) erscheint die Fortsetzung „Summer and the City. A Carrie Dairies Novel“. Natürlich ist das US-Cover wieder ganz fabelhaft und SATC-like.

Summer is a magical time in New York City and Carrie is in love with all of it—the crazy characters in her neighborhood, the vintage-clothing boutiques, the wild parties, and the glamorous man who has swept her off her feet. Best of all, she’s finally in a real writing class, taking her first steps toward fulfilling her dream. This sequel to THE CARRIE DIARIES brings surprising revelations as Carrie learns to navigate her way around the Big Apple, going from being a country “sparrow”– as Samantha Jones dubs her– to the person she always wanted to be. But as it becomes increasingly difficult to reconcile her past with her future, Carrie realizes that making it in New York is much more complicated than she ever imagined. With her signature wit and sparkling humor, Candace Bushnell reveals the irresistible story of how Carrie met Samantha and Miranda, and what turned a small-town girl into one of the New York City’s most unforgettable icons, Carrie Bradshaw.
