Summary
Coinciding with the twentieth anniversary of the iconic television series, Sex and the city and us tells 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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Armstrong, author of Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted (2013) and Seinfeldia (2016), now chronicles another groundbreaking TV show from both sides of the screen. To follow Sex and the City's story from, then, dating-columnist Candace Bushnell's keyboard through six seasons and two films, Armstrong weaves together 20 years' worth of written conversation about the show with dozens of her own interviews. Despite many condescending initial reviews, some of which softened with the show's phenomenal success, SATC achieved unprecedented reach and influence while portraying women dating and living as they never had before on TV. A brief moment between characters Carrie and Miranda launched a worldwide cupcake craze; a candid bit of dating advice between staffers was memorably written into an episode before becoming a mega-best-selling book and its popular film adaptation: He's just not that into you. HBO built its now highly respected television brand on the show. Armstrong doesn't gloss over SATC's earned criticisms, either. Sophisticated, highly readable, and thought-provoking fodder for Carries, Mirandas, Samanthas, Charlottes, and all pop-culture junkies at large.--Bostrom, Annie Copyright 2018 Booklist"
