Staff Reviews


This is an entertaining novel, set in the 1940's, from the author of Eat, Pray, Love. Vivian, who is 95 years old, is looking back and reflecting upon her life. At the age of 19 she was kicked out of Vassar because she did not attend class. So, her parents send her to New York City to live with her eccentric aunt who runs a playhouse and here Vivian is quickly embraced by the theater community and meets an interesting cast of characters.

City of Girls is a champagne cocktail, a tonic for anything that ails you, and the summer read you can’t miss! Vivian Morris, an upper-class, 19-year-old college dropout, finds herself in the chaotic New York City theater world of the 1940s. What ensues is a story full of sex, glamour, and witty one-liners that spans decades. All those who led a heedless youth or wish they had will fall for this book about growing into the person you’ve always wanted to be. Gilbert has written a glittering piece of fiction that subtly delivers wisdom about the nature of human connection and leaves the reader braver, freer, and, at least for the moment, happier.”
