In Four Blondes, the writer who created Carrie and Mr. Big introduces new scheming women and schmucky men who will feel awfully familiar to fans of ”Sex and the City.” But a bored Bushnell traipses through these four unrelated stories hastily, as if her Jimmy Choos were killing her; each blond is simultaneously overcooked and underdone.
Grasping Janey judges a potential boyfriend by the quality of his Hamptons summerhouse; smug Winnie manipulates her husband; and drug-addled Cecelia has a protracted nervous breakdown. In the final story, a famous journalist who writes about sex finds romance in London (as has Bushnell) with a man who is ”beautiful in the way that Englishmen can be and Americans never are.” How is that? Readers must simply take her word.
