“Sex and the City” siren Kim Cattrall, 44, and her husband, sound systems expert Mark Levinson, are shopping around a proposal for a sex manual for women, reports MSNBC.com. The fact that a husband and wife are doing the guide in tandem is meant to give the book a professional polish, rather than making it seem like the work of a desperate single woman, a publishing insider tells the Web site. Meanwhile, in other publishing news, The New York Post reports that insult comic Don Rickles, 74, is shopping his autobiography to book houses. The 10-page proposal, says the paper, spoofs author Mitch Albom’s runaway best-seller “Tuesdays With Morrie: An Old Man, A Young Man and Life’s Greatest Lesson.” Rickles’s work is to be called “Wednesdays with Rickles: A Young Man, a Not So Young Man and Life’s Greatest Puck.” (Rickles, who can be heard in the “Toy Story” movies, often refers to people he is insulting as “hockey pucks.”) Rickles’s agent, Mel Berger of William Morris, tells the Post that he hopes to have a deal sewn up right after Thanksgiving.
