City of Girls is also the first novel Gilbert has ever written as a kind of riposte to her critics. In , she published her novel The Signature of All Things, cementing her reputation as a literary juggernaut. Her laughter is wry. I dare you to call this chick lit! Just read it. All those doors are closed, you know? That radio is always on.

Her voice softens. So, to a certain extent, this is a memoir for me. Gilbert takes a photo with a guest at the meet and greet in Los Angeles. You get to have that, and I get to keep doing what I do. We often relate most to memoirs when their stories connect with some aspect of our own life.
I have this one on the Kindle, and it translates well. Footnotes, TOC work fine. But most of all, it's the text and the mechanics. This is a classic in the San Francisco community college arena, where English instructors push the text, through anthologies that have included it, or the book itself.

As soon as affirmative action comes into play again, they'll call him back. Some say he's too flowery, something characteristic of minority English students.
