Carrie Bradshaw, The Early Years

by admin September 17, 2008 4:46 pm
Carrie Bradshaw, The Early Years Just when you thought we couldn't suck from the withered teat that is the Sex and the City franchise any more, news has surfaced that SATC scribe Candace Bushnell will revisit the title and churn out not one but two books that focus on the humble beginnings of Carrie Bradshaw. Hmmm, could the recent success of Gossip Girl and its followers have anything to do with her decision to explore Carrie's high school career? According to Bushnell, "Carrie in high school did not follow the crowd -- she led it. It was there that she began observing and commenting on the social scene." Huh. So was she a small-town gal whose flair for outlandish fashion and razor sharp social observations made her an outcast? Will the story arch follow her transformation from weird girl to popular prom queen? Or will we get more of the same -- fabulous, artfully maladjusted teenagers with nary a zit, weight problem or bad hair day in sight? Because clearly we don't have nearly enough of those. Talk about an embarrassment of bitches.

The Carrie Diaries are set to be published by Harper Collins and will debut in 2010. Here's hoping the cultural zeitgeist has moved beyond shows about Rich A-Holes so we're spared a TV adaptation. Oh, who the hell am I kidding? They should just stick an IV into Bushnell's arm and mainline her thoughts directly into the CW's writing room. It'd save a lot of time -- and trees. Seriously, who reads books anymore? That's, like, so '87!
