Product description


A glamorous, sexy, compelling romp of a novel about showgirls in New York in the 1940s. It is an addictive story, with vivid, brazenly drawn female characters, that brims with fascinating historical details of the time . Radical and refreshing to read (Dolly Alderton Sunday Times)

I adored this story, I fell in love with Vivian from page one, she has an utterly singular voice, and I was captivated by tcombination of glamour and grit - it's a dazzling escapist fantasy with characters and emotions that are thrillingly real (Daisy Buchanan)

A glorious, multi-layered, emotionally astute celebration of womanhood . An eloquently persuasive treatise on the judgment and punishment of women, and a heartfelt call to reclaim female sexual agency (Sam Baker Guardian)

Breezily funny and vividly written, City Of Girls is a quietly radical celebration of feminine sexual inhibition that slips down as easily as a gin martini. Expect to see it on multiple beaches this summer (Claire Allfree Metro)

A rollicking, beautifully rendered ride of glitter and fun . Gilbert's novel is something of a masterpiece of flapdoodle itself . Gilbert has a knack for storytelling and her plot doesn't so much twist as twirl, high-kicking all the way . A rambunctious anthem to living a life joyous and satisfyingly full - and that deserves an ovation (Evening Standard)

City of Girls will be a hit ... Readers will adore its bolstering message of hope (Sunday Times)

Written with such wit, verve and emotional honesty that you feel you've washed down 100 life lessons within a vodka martini . There are some of the most brilliant and truthful evocations of youthful sexual exploration that you'll ever read . She has triumphed. City of Girls is an education in love, and an iridescent delight (Rowan Pelling Spectator)

Brilliant on female friendship, desire and the influence a good mentor can bring to enrich a young woman's life (Grazia Summer Reads)

Compelling . works with themes of freedom, responsibility and empowerment that feel both timeless and timely. In a moment when women's desires are still being governed, this is a story about a woman who recognises - and embraces - hers (Time)

There is so much to love in City of Girls. Vivian's voice is strong and leaves you yearning for more time with her (Independent)
