Candace Bushnell and 'The Carrie Diaries'

profiled Candace Bushnell for the New York Times Magazine (briefly), and the only part I wish hadn't been cut was a description of her voice, which is unexpectedly and pleasantly low.

"If the scene weren’t so genuinely comfortable, it would have been unsettling how perfectly it embodied a certain kind of adolescent girl’s literary fantasies — “Baby-Sitters Club” meets “Sweet Valley High” meets “Sex and the City” meets all those young-adult books about horseback riding and pluck."

Niiiiiiiice.

I like her pants. Well, the whole outfit's pretty killer, but I want those pants.

@olivebee I want those POODLES!!! Pepper and PRANCER!!! Standard poodles are my spirit animals. They're like little ponies with wet noses.

DOLLHOUSE. Second paragraph. Nailed it.

Off to read the rest...

You know it's An Edith Original when there's a reference to dolls in tiny houses within the first two paragraphs

noReally

I love her dogs. Is a pied poodle a thing? She doesn't have a score posted above Training.

yeah-elle

This was a very well-written piece, but mostly the thought of this dollhouse, dressage, poodle, chardonnay life, oh god, it's giving me hives. Money makes me itchy??

I loved this, but am I allowed to be confused about why shelled nuts needed to be cracked? IS IT A SUPER-SECRET METAPHOR????????

shiv

@C_Webb un-shelled nuts, they were. I had to reread that line too.

What is it about rich blonde ladies and dancing horses?

Slutface

@Megan@twitter It's a power thing.

Nice piece. She is a little terrifying.

Her wine-drinking habits are similar to my mother's.

StandardTuber

Liked this a lot, and made me think of her as a Joan Crawford-esque personality. And Edith, can I just say that tweet from that tool was totally asinine? Because what a douche.

Is she kind of a bitch? My mom grew up in the same town as her and always said she was kind of a bitch (I think she resents the time she came to Glastonbury and held some $100-a-ticket book signing event and my mom was offended because THIS IS HER HOMETOWN, HOW COULD SHE)

That she thinks legendary Jazz Age satirist Evelyn Waugh depicts "how the world really is" is either brilliant or deeply stupid.

noReally

@lawyergay And wanting to "be" Waugh suggests that she's never read anything about him. He was a disaster. And kind of a dick.

OhMyGoshYouGuys

@noReally I was just reading a New Yorker article about loving the writing of author's you hate. Evelyn Waugh was one of the example.
From the article:
I love Evelyn Waugh a lot, though he was a terrific snob and mean as a snake—qualities as evident in his work as they are said to have been in his life.

Waugh’s biographer, Christopher Sykes, tells the story of a dinner party where a fellow guest told Waugh how much she’d enjoyed “Brideshead Revisited,” to which he replied, “I thought it was good myself, but now that I know that a vulgar, common American woman like yourself admires it, I am not so sure.”

@OhMyGoshYouGuys It is said that when Kathleen Kennedy was killed in a plane crash with the guy who was divorcing in order to marry her, he uttered aloud that it was basically just deserts, her being Catholic American Royalty and all. Like, God got her.

"She was drinking rosé through a straw." I honestly feel like I know everything there is to know, now, about the world.
