Tales of the City (20th Anniversary edition)

In honor of the release of Armistead Maupin’s 9th book in the Tales of the City series today The Days of Anna Madrigal, we’ve got the re-release of his ground-breaking PBS adaptation of the first novel on DVD for you to watch.  This sweet story about San Francisco in the 1970’s was banned on several TV stations in the South.  20 years later that idea seems more quaint than shocking.  Maupin’s group of friends at 28 Barbary Lane join together and create their logical family (his phrase for the family we choose).  For Hitchcock fans, there’s definitely more than a few nods in the mini-series.  As the cover suggests, this is truly one of the best mini-series ever made.

Read the new book The Days of Anna Madrigal.
Watch the original mini-series Tales of the City on DVD.
