Reviews

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 *
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 *

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 ...

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

The self-portrait of a woman whose truest intimacy is with her own being ... It's the story of a woman who's made an independent life as best she can. If the usual narrative shapes don't fit most lives - neither she nor her creator seems to be worrying about it * New York Times *
Expect to spot a copy on every beach towel come June * Vogue, Must-Reads *

`For years, I have wanted to write a novel about women who have a lot of sex, and who like it, and whose lives aren't destroyed by it," says Eat Pray Love author Gilbert. This is that book, set across the glittering fabric of a lost New York * Red, The books we can't wait to read 2019 *
