city of girls by elizabeth gilbert
book of the month from much ado books

This month, our friends at Much Ado Books recommend Elizabeth Gilbert's City of Girls

A fizzy, fast-shifting coming-of-age book set in New York City in the 30s and 40s. The backdrop of big city glamour, showbiz seduction and heady times offers page-turning pleasures, but the portrait of a young woman’s life also give pause for thought. It is a rollicking, fun read for all.

About much ado books

Much Ado Books is an award-winning independent bookshop offering both new and old books from a compound in Alfriston, East Sussex.

There, you can find a warm welcome and books spread through two floors of a former builders’ yard – with more books in a Shepherds Hut (near the shop’s henhouse) and a stylish cabin devoted to Arts and Letters. Owners Cate Olson and Nash Robbins bring a distinctive style to their shop design, their unique displays and especially to their hand-picked range of books.
