Elizabeth Gilbert is an American novelist, short story writer and journalist, best known for her 2006 travel memoir, Eat, Pray, Love, a record of her personal odyssey across the globe in the wake of painful divorce, which became an international bestseller. Four years later the book was remade by Hollywood, with Julia Roberts cast as the author. 2010 also saw the publication of Committed, a sequel of sorts to Eat, Pray, Love, a spiky meditation on marriage. The novel The Signature of All Things appeared in 2013 before Gilbert returned to non-fiction for the spiritual self-help guide Big Magic two years later.
Revelling unabashedly in hedonism and excess, the characters in City of Girls are bursting with life and vigour. Vivian is seamstress to the showgirls of a revue bar in 1940s Manhattan, throwing herself in to the glamour of her new life with wild abandon. But there are dangerous choices to make and different identities to craft if she wants to survive in wartime New York.
