Candace Bushnell

Novelist

The author of “Sex and the City” and “Lipstick Jungle” straddles the fence between comedy and romance with her own books. Merging the two is tough business, but Candace Bushnell believes some filmmakers have been able to pull it off.

“‘Bringing Up Baby’ and ‘The Philadelphia Story’ are the gold standards,” she begins. Then there’s Woody Allen’s “Annie Hall,” which Bushnell puts in its own separate pantheon:

“This is a movie where the lover is not a person, but a place, New York City, in which the relationship is not with another, but with the self. Annie Hall does beautifully what so many romantic comedies can’t: It captures love as it really is, as opposed to how we wish it would be. And makes it OK.”
