I'm not familiar with Ms Gilbert, but one autographical book I very much like is 'West with the Night' by Beryl Markham. It's essentially a collection of short stories. It was made into a TV mini-series with Stephanie Powers in the lead role in the 1980s/1990s.
I think James Goldman's 'Myself as Witness' had a diary-type format, but it's some time since I read that.Philip Marsden
's The Bronski House was a good read too. Sort of a family history / memoir thing as I recall.
