Firmdale Book Salon Online - May: Book of the Month from Much Ado Books

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.
