City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A coming of age novel set in the 1940s this glittering epic had me hooked from page one. Nice American girl Vivian is sent to stay with her aunt in New York and let loose, has an absolute ball. Her aunt has a small down at heel theatre company in downtown Manhattan, where Vivian makes costumes for the cast. When she isn’t sewing clothes Vivian is discovering the what New York life is really about with the theatre show girls. She hits NYC and she hits it hard!
Vivian! I hot damn loved you babe. You enthralled me. I listened to this on audio and the narrative was enhanced by the spot on reading of actress Blair Brown.
