Television's sauciest and sexiest program is nothing less than a national phenomenon. Now, after four wildly successful and critically acclaimed seasons, the show's winning formula of sex, glamour, humor, and candor is available in a one-of-a-kind, elegant, and uniquely entertaining hardcover book.Sex and The City: Kiss and Tellis the ultimate fan bible, offering a comprehensive behind the scenes guide to NYC and its most fabulous foursome -- the friends and boyfriends, the bar rooms and bedrooms, the infatuations and fashions. Packed with information and photos not available anywhere else, it will fascinate and delight its readers with wholly original material from the show's stars, producers, writers, costume designers, and more.It includes all-access passes to the sets, production offices, and wardrobe closets at the Silvercup studios; an insider's tour of the sets; and a detailed map of the bistros and boutiques where Carrie and friends sip, shop, and seduce. Each of the show's major players are interviewed, offering revealing, intimate biographies and sharing the true life stories that inspire every episode. An elegant, beautiful edition with an exclusive introduction from Sarah Jessica Parker herself, this book is every bit as intoxicating as the pink Cosmopolitans sipped by Carrie and friends at Manhattan's chichest hot spots.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Those who follow fictional columnist Carrie Bradshaw's every move will revel in Sex and the City: Kiss and Tell, a colorful companion complete with a hot-pink faux alligator cover to the wildly popular HBO series. New York magazine's "Naked City" columnist Amy Sohn offers an overview of the show's premise, photos of seasons past, biographies of and interviews with cast members and the show's producers, episode summaries and more. Hundreds of photos fill the pages, while sidebars (such as "The Rules, by Charlotte York" and a piece on why Carrie wears a tutu during the show's opening sequence) provide further insight into the show's quirks. There's also a glossary explaining what a Martha Stewart of Death is ("a woman who overcoordinates grief plans"), a fashion guide that shows the women of the show wearing Manolo Blahnik, Tahari and Emanuel Ungaro, a trivia quiz and a map showing Carrie and company's favorite New York hangouts.

Library Journal Review

What is the best accessory a fashionable woman of the new millennium can acquire? An Yves San Laurent bag or a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes may become pass but a book with the inside scoop on Sex and the City will never go out of style. Sohn, a novelist (Run Catch Kiss) and the "Naked City" columnist for New York magazine, gives the down-and-dirty details on seasons one through four of the HBO smash comedy, with a recap of story lines, standout clothes, quotes, behind-the-scenes activity, and, of course, accessories. Also included are biographies of both the actors and the characters, from the four core women to the men that come in and out of their lives. In full color, with a light wit and insider's knowledge, the book gets every envious woman (or man) as close to Carrie (or her shoes), Samantha, Charlotte, Miranda, Aidan, and even Steve, as she (or he) is ever likely to get. Although it might not be as coveted as Tom Ford's Marquis bag, it is cheaper and will give readers something to talk about over their cocktails. Including an introduction by Sarah Jessica Parker, this will be requested. Highly recommended. Rachel Collins, "Library Journal" (c) Copyright 2010.
