Bestselling author Jennifer Keishin Armstrong marks the 20th anniversary Sex and the City with a look at the show’s riveting evolution and cultural impact.
Armstrong draws on exclusive interviews with Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Michael Patrick King, Darren Star, HBO and author Candace Bushnell, to bring us the story of how a columnist, two gay men — Darren Star and fellow executive producer Michael Patrick King — and a writers’ room full of women used their own poignant, hilarious and humiliating stories to launch a cultural phenomenon, pushing the boundaries of television and igniting a national conversation about single women and sex in the process. As she did with Seinfeldia and Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted, Armstrong shows us how the groundbreaking show not only changed how we think about sex, but also how it highlighted the importance of women supporting each other through life’s tribulations, and how it impacted trends in fashion, shoes, cocktails and even cupcakes for an entire generation.
