In response to the query: Anarchist or alternative families in fiction, there are many, many Utopian, science fiction and novels with characters that hew close to what I think you are looking for. I've tried to limit my choices to books or movies about families in anarchist or socialist communes, but I've also thrown in some of my favorites about gay, alternative or nontraditional families. There are no sources to cite; I dug through our catalogue and brainstormed with colleagues. For the films I dug around in the Internet Movie Database (us.imdb.com) and received tips from fellow Radical Reference members. I hope others will add many comments and additions to this useful list!
