In her fifth book about ambitious, covetous, pampered New Yorkers, Candace Bushnell laments the decline of art, the bitchiness of gossip and the crass commercialization of publishing. The author sounds genuinely battle-scarred. Her complaints seem to come from the heart. But if memory serves, Ms. Bushnell was part of the problem before she became part of the solution.
