Product description

Review

'[Listeners] prepared to enter Gilbert Time will be rewarded: she is an unflaggingly curious writer, prone to delightful touches.' (The Sunday Times)

'Sumptuous ... Gilbert's prose is by turns flinty, funny, and incandescent.' (The New Yorker)

'Gilbert dares us into adventures of worldly discovery.' (The New York Times Book Review)

'Smart but unpretentious, funny, warm, and generous. By the end of one of her books, you feel as if she is your friend, too.' (San Francisco Chronicle)

'If a more likable writer than Gilbert is currently in print, I haven't found him or her. Gilbert's prose is fuelled by a mix of intelligence, wit and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible, and makes the [listener] only too glad to join the posse of friends and devotees who have the pleasure of listening in.' (The New York Times Book Review)
