Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

In Candace Bushnell's new pre-quel to Sex and the City, readers meet 17-year old Carrie Bradshaw, a high school student who's obsessed with cooking coq a vin, is a virgin until senior year of high school, and is the oldest of three—she has two younger sisters! PopEater points out there are some key differences between the book-Carrie and the onscreen-Carrie: i.e. she doesn't cook as an adult, she tells Charlotte she lost her virginity in 11th grade, and the television series features a visit from her high school boyfriend Jeremy (played by David Duchovny)—he never makes an appearance in Bushnell's new book. Differences, shmifferences, we still can't wait to read it! [PopEater]
