Fan of Carrie Bradshaw though she is, African American novelist Deanna Kimberly Burrell felt she could improve on the iconic character's world by looking deeper into her past. That in her new novel, Single Girl Summer."One thing that I thought the characters were missing in Sex and the City was that they never talked about their families, their backgrounds, how they became the women that they were," she tells Upfront & Straightforward host Alan Roger Currie. "That's something I wanted to address in my book. It has the female camaraderie, the relationships, but it shows the background, how the parents' interaction with the children, how that affects their relationships."
