Summary

The new novel from the international best-selling 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.

Critic reviews

"Packed with her trademark wit...a perfect summer read." (Closer)
"Fans of Sex and the City rejoice...Bushnell's wit is devastatingly dark and subversive...a welcome antidote to saccharine tales of finding 'the one.'" (Heat)
"Fabulous." (Daily Mail)
"One of those novels you promise you will read for half-an-hour, only to realise when you look up again that several hours have passed...a pacy read packed with juicy scandal and lashings of wry humour." (Herald)

pointless

After enjoying Lipstick Jungle years ago I decided to try another book by Candace Bushnell, but unfortunately I have not enjoyed Killing Monica, it doesn't flow at all. The only thing that slightly saves it on audiobooks is the narrator. As I was half way through before realising it wasnt going to get any better I thought I may aswell continue to the end. Save yourselves and avoid wasting your time on this one.
