Behind the fabulous star of Sex and the City.
The first biography of the star of Sex and the City, the ground-breaking HBO series. Sex and the City, a frank television show about modern urban women and sex, was a phenomenal hit from the moment it premiered on on HBO in 1998. The key to its success is its smart and sexy star, Sarah Jessica Parker.
Marc Shapiro’s riveting biography charts Parker’s rise to fame, from her poverty-stricken roots in Nelsonville, Ohio to overnight stardom on Broadway in Annie. Sarah Jessica Parker includes insight into her Hollywood success in the television series Square Pegs and breakout movie role in Footloose; her tragic romance with drug addict Robert Downey Jr. and subsequent high-profile relationships with John F. Kennedy Jr. and Nicholas Cage; her marriage with the man of her dreams, Matthew Broderick; and why she refuses to appear nude in movies and photo shoots. The book also charts her accomplishments as an actress-comedian in such films as L.A. Story, Honeymoon in Vegas, Miami Rhapsody, If Lucy Fell, Dudley Do Right, and State and Main and in the plays Sylvia and Once Upon a Mattress.

Rowling: The Wizard Behind Harry Potter, Mariah Carey: The Unauthorized Biography, Carlos Santana: Back on Top, and Creed: From Zero to Popularity.
