Lots of it, some hilarious and all without remorse. Gilbert talked to Marie Claire about her sparkling new novel and whether she found the answers to any of those big questions. I did research on the book for about four years. It was a vast amount of stuff from these interviews with women in their 90s, who I felt like I had to get to quickly.

I should not be putting this book off for even another six months. Also, the New York Public Library has a theater wing with a collection of all its theater resources, so I spent a lot of time there reading letters and scripts and diaries from productions of the s. Even trying to get the pricing right—how much tickets were, how much costumers were paid, that sort of thing.

And that was the experience that I had when I was interviewing these women in their 90s in preparation for the book. One of the concerns I had as I started writing it was we need to get the sex correct for the era. I don't wanna impose too modern a sexual viewpoint on a different time, and at first I didn't know whether the story [I wanted to write] could have existed in that age.

What I discovered is it absolutely could have existed and did exist. Every generation thinks they're the people who invented sex but actually people have been doing it for a long time. Some of it with a great deal of enthusiasm.

My favorite interview was this woman in her 90s named Norma Amigo, who was a former showgirl who had never gotten married—sill lived in the same apartment in the Upper West side that she'd moved into in This is the only thing she wants to talk about! Once she said that, I realized that I could absolutely write this book the way I wanted to. The girls like us have existed for a long time—more time than you might think.

I look around the world and what I think I see is that everyone is trying to solve sex. I see people trying to solve it by having a lot of it and people trying to solve it by not having any of it. A version of this article originally appeared in the June issue of Marie Claire.
