A delicious, enticing adventure through 1930-1940s New York as young Viv gets sent to her aunt's rundown theatre. She becomes entranced by the glamour and the glitz, all the while ignoring the Second Great War that looms in the background. Soon, she will have to turn and face reality in some of the most profound ways. Gilbert's writing is a delight to read.

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.”
