Remember that book we urged you to hurry up and write? The one retroactively endorsed and publicized by the Sex and the City movie?
Well, it seems that in a mere six weeks someone has already beat you to it. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the fictitious titled called Love Letters of Great Men, from which Carrie read love letters from Napoleon and Beethoven to Mr. Big in one of the film’s scenes, has been thrown together by UK publisher Pan MacMillan to be released August 15th.
In June, after seeing SATC, hordes of loyal fans stormed Amazon.com, but were not able to find the book that didn’t exist. The closest sounding title was Love Letters Of Great Men and Women: From the Eighteenth Century to the Present Day, published in London in 1924 and reissued last year by Kessinger Publishing. Needless to say, it did not satisfy.
According to the publisher, the book will includ, “all of the letters referenced in the film,” which must make it a pretty quick read since Carrie only mentions a few of the letters throughout the film.
