[74] Candace Bushnell, author of Rules for Being a Girl

“There are all these studies that show women lose their confidence at age 13 or 14. All this weird shit is happening and it changes your worldview.” – Candace Bushnell

Candace Bushnell is the critically acclaimed, international best-selling author of ten books, including Is There Still Sex in the City, Sex and the City, Summer and the City, The Carrie Diaries, One Fifth Avenue, Lipstick Jungle, Trading Up, Killing Monica and Four Blondes.
