Review

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 (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

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 (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 (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 (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)

Book Description

The blazingly brilliant new novel from Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the international bestseller Eat Pray Love: a glittering coming-of-age epic stitched across the fabric of a lost New York
