A new novel by journalist and writer Candace Bushnell "Is there still sex in the city?" Will be released in Russian very soon. On this occasion, the BeautyHack editors, together with the largest book service MyBook, have prepared a selection of book novelties in 2020, which we will definitely read. And they also include the sequel to Margaret Atwood's bestselling The Handmaid's Tale, Jonathan Safran Foer's exploration of how to save the planet, the story of singer Patti Smith, and more.

"Is there still sex and the city?" Candace Bushnell

Candace Bushnell's new novel Is There More Sex and the City? is not a sequel to her bestselling book, based on which the TV series Sex and the City of the same name was filmed. This time, the writer omitted all pseudonyms (as you know, her Carrie Bradshaw was partially copied from herself) and spoke frankly about her life. The book describes her dialogues with her friends, the search for a man in Tinder, dates, romances and adventures that really took place. No fantasy, just the truth. But, as always, with humor and an optimistic outlook on life.

The Covenants by Margaret Atwood

30 years later, Canadian writer Margaret Atwood wrote a sequel to her famous "The Handmaid's Tale" (the series based on the book, by the way, was extended for a fourth season), for which she immediately received one of the most prestigious literary awards - Booker-2019. The events of the "Covenants" unfold 15 years after the last scene of "The Handmaid's Tale" - in the same Republic of Gilead, a patriarchal state that arose in the place of the United States. The story is told from the faces of three heroines: aunt Lydia, Agnes and Daisy. The novel will once again tell about the seamy side of patriarchy, women's solidarity and the struggle for their rights.

French writer of Iranian descent, Marjan Satrapi writes on topics that excite her. In her first best-selling graphic novel, Persepolis, she talked about the difficult life of a growing up girl in Iran against the backdrop of the Islamic Revolution, a girl who wants a different life. Satrapi's new work "Embroidery" is also partly autobiographical: it contains stories of Iranian women who secretly talk with each other while patriarchal men do not hear them. These are stories of love and betrayal, early marriages and difficulties in marriage - everything that is really important in this life.

This time, we are presented with a collection of essays written in an easy and accessible language, only this time the main topic is ecology. On the agenda is global warming, which risks turning into a catastrophe for all inhabitants of the planet. In his essays, Foer reflects on why we are in such an unenviable position, and suggests some solutions: for example, at least partially reduce the consumption of animal products, until the Earth turns into a huge capitalist farm.

Patti Smith, nicknamed "the godmother of punk rock", author of the collection of poetic prose "I Shepherd the Clouds", as well as two autobiographical novels "Just Children" and "M Train", pleases us with her new book. The book "Year of the Monkey" is dedicated to 2016, an important year in the singer's life and American politics - Smith turns 70, behind his back, one might say, his whole life, and the victory in the American elections is won by Donald Trump, heralding a new era.

Bernardine Evaristo, an Anglo-Nigerian writer, shared the 2019 Booker Prize with Margaret Atwood herself. “Girl, Woman, Others” is her eighth novel, it tells the story of the lives of twelve women (whose age ranges from 19 to 93 years), each of which is devoted to a separate chapter. The destinies of all the heroines are somehow symbolically intertwined: through relatives, mutual friends or acquaintances. Basically, her heroines are black British women, whose experience, which is absent in literature, was so important to reflect to the writer. The Booker Prize jury called the novel "must-read on contemporary Britain and femininity."
