City of Girls

City of Girls is a guilty pleasure beach read from Elizabeth Gilbert. Her breezy easy writing style is filled with comedic elements and a rich history of NYC theater in the 1930’s-1940’s. WW11 is an important part of the novel too. This coming of age tale is wrapped in empowerment.  The ending stunned me with unrelenting tears. I didn’t see that coming. The array of characters surrounding Vivian Morris are beyond loveable. Her creation of family when her somewhat cold parents fail her makes for a rewarding read.
