In City of Girls, Elizabeth Gilbert has written a novel that spans over 60 years, as Vivian Morris tells her story. She was expelled from Vassar for lack of performance, and sent by family to NYC. There she lives with Aunt Peg in a crumbling, struggling theater, where she meets and comes to love, a cast of diverse and interesting characters. Her story covers decades of successes, failures, embarrassments, and the road to freedom. Gilbert, as always, creates realistic characters and good dialogue. This is a good read.
City of Girls is available on the Ezone as an ebook or audiobook.
