Amy Sohn. Pocket Books, $40 (160pp) ISBN 978-0-7434-5681-4

Those who follow fictional columnist Carrie Bradshaw's every move will revel in Sex and the City: Kiss and Tell, a colorful companion complete with a hot-pink faux alligator cover to the wildly popular HBO series. New York magazine's ""Naked City"" columnist Amy Sohn offers an overview of the show's premise, photos of seasons past, biographies of and interviews with cast members and the show's producers, episode summaries and more. Hundreds of photos fill the pages, while sidebars (such as ""The Rules, by Charlotte York"" and a piece on why Carrie wears a tutu during the show's opening sequence) provide further insight into the show's quirks. There's also a glossary explaining what a Martha Stewart of Death is (""a woman who overcoordinates grief plans""), a fashion guide that shows the women of the show wearing Manolo Blahnik, Tahari and Emanuel Ungaro, a trivia quiz and a map showing Carrie and company's favorite New York hangouts.
