Competition for wealth, notoriety, power, and place of residence have been and always will be part of the City that never sleeps and Candace’s “One Fifth Avenue” is a mercilessly witty modern day story of old and new money, the always combustible mix that E. Wharton and Fitzgerald described so well in decades past The sexual politics, real estate theft, the thirst for power and social prominence are all freshly presented and uncannily described.
One Fifth Avenue is a one of a kind address, it’s the sort of building you have to earn vushnell way into, and when Louise Houghton dies, there’s just one too many who are willing to fight for her splendid apartment in this Art Deco beauty towering over one of Manhattan’s oldest and most historically hip neighborhoods. For the women in Candace’s novel, this apartment building is essential to their lives and their dreams and they are not going to stop at nothing librox get a place within its magical walls.
There’s new rich Annalisa Rice married to the computer whiz Paul Rice who cannot tolerate the neighbors and who is growing more and more paranoid as his success and limitless fortune grows.
There’s Mindy Gooch, James’ wife who is the President of the Board for the building and who is not willing to change any apartment to please the residents; cndace just wishes she could live in a better looking apartment than the one she’s got, which used to be the servants quarters in the good old New York days.
Then there’s actress Schiffer Diamond who decides to return to Manhattan after her long stay in L. There’s Enid, Philip’s aunt and one of the oldest residents in the entire building and then there’s Lola Fabrikant who bushmell a 22 year old woman who comes to New York to meet potential husbands and who ends up living with a good for nothing guy just like her.
This novel lobros yet another success, kudos for Candace for doing it again. A sad story and not at all humorous.
The story was a commentary on today’s society. All of the characters showed elements bushmell in the American culture currently There was no one who provided a picture of human goodness.
Seemed to me a “sick” narrative.

As usual, Bushnell writes about a most eclectic group of people, all money hungry, selfish, greedy, promiscuous and never busnhell with what they have. The most normal character in the book was an adolescent boy. Everybody has more money than they know what to do with it, but never enough. I was both appalled and entranced. It was like reading porn. Is utterly pointless, but you cannot put it down.
You have two men that think with their lower body organs instead of their actual head, a woman that will sleep with whomever to live in librks particular building, an actress that is weary of lying libors the bed she made, a mom with a married life very similiar to the rest of us folks, an old busy body, and of course, a possibly gay fellow. And let us not forget the filthy rich and high and mighty upstairs.
This book follows bushnel, lives and it is shocking how their choices and situations entwine. I could not put it down. Bushnell somehow does it again. There is quite possibly a moral in this novel.
You may be pleasantly surprised. This was my second Candace Bushnell novel my first being Lipstick Jungle. I choose not to read Sex and the City first because it just seems like I would be set up for disopointment if the book was to different from the show.
I am someone who ussually ends up always thinking the book is better but I have read certain things about Sex and the City the book that make me scared to read it and have to accept that is how the characters I have grown to love are not who I expected them to librod like. So after reading Lipstick Jungle I was in love with her writing style and the story. It was obviously set up to play out as if it could be a tv show which it did become but I found it interesting and something I could read for a candxce period of time.
I bought Lipstick Jungle with One Fifth and well I read the opening and found it confusing so tried to ignore the book for a few months until I needed a long book to read for an assignment so I got it off librls shelf and got into it and well The book is not as bad as some people on here comment it to be but I am not sure what the point of the amount of characters was and she did not give them an equal amount of time the character of Billy who opens up the book disapears till almost half way through the first act of the book another character who shows up around the same time Billy reapears named Lola is annoying she comes into the story as a “Socailite” wannabe from the south who dreams of being in the world of Carrie Bradshaw this actually is in the book so she does not write in the same universe from book to book yet most of her books if not all are all set in New York City several characters I started out liking but by the end of the book I felt nothing for them.
One Character in particular who you are introduced to hate Mindy Gooche who is said to canace a characterised as busjnell middle aged woman who is unable to have sex due to a pane she feels from penitration. Mindy has a husband named James who is a writer who has written one or two good books and struck candce big candaxe his latest book making him think he can get Lola to fall for him which candacs does.
Mindy also has a son Sam who is 13 and feels he needs to be nice to everyone in the building because of his mothers behaivor. Mindy is ilbros rich like the ilbros in the building she lives in an apartment that used to be a maids residents when it was a hotel. Mindy wants to be rich but will never be.
By the end of the book you actually do feel something for Mindy she is no better in personality but by the end the people who you are supposed to like all become less sympothetic and Mindy becomes the character to love. I did not hate the book I did not love it though I would recomend reading it you have to read it till the end and read it for what it is. I thought it was funny and well written but is flawed. I suggest reading Lipstick Jungle either before or after this one because Candace Bushnell can write and Lipstick Jungle is a good book just like this one but focuses on less characters.
