By Candace Bushnell
Read by Therese Plummer
The new novel from the international bestselling author Candace Bushnell, full of her trademark wit and style.
In Killing Monica Bushnell spoofs and skewers her way through pop culture, celebrity worship, fame and even the meaning of life itself, when a famous writer must resort to faking her own death in order to get her life back from her most infamous creation - Monica. With her trademark humour and style, Killing Monica is Bushnell's sharpest, funniest book to date.
This is Bushnell at her best - full of mordant wit, casual sex and highly conspicuous consumption.
Compared by the Observer to Nancy Mitford and by the Sunday Telegraph to 'Jane Austen with a Martini', Candace Bushnell is the critically acclaimed, international best-selling novelist whose first book, Sex and the City, published in 1996, was the basis for the HBO hit series. Bushnell captured the country's attention with Sex and the City by breaking down the bedroom doors of New York City's rich and beautiful to expose true contemporary stories of sex, love and relationships.
