Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This beautifully written, heartfelt memoir touched a nerve among both readers and reviewers. Elizabeth Gilbert tells how she made the difficult choice to leave behind all the trappings of modern American success (marriage, house in the country, career) and find, instead, what she truly wanted from life. Setting out for a year to study three different aspects of her nature amid three different cultures, Gilbert explored the art of pleasure in Italy and the art of devotion in India, and then a balance between the two on the Indonesian island of Bali. By turns rapturous and rueful, this wise and funny author (whom Booklist calls Anne Lamotts hip, yoga- practicing, footloose younger sister) is poised to garner yet more adoring fans.

Synopsis:

A celebrated writer pens an irresistible, candid, and eloquent account of her pursuit of worldly pleasure, spiritual devotion, and what she really wanted out of life.

About the Author

Elizabeth Gilbert is the author of a short story collection, Pilgrims-a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award, and winner of the 1999 John C. Zacharis First Book Award from Ploughshares-and a novel, Stern Men. A Pushcart Prize winner and National Magazine Award-nominated journalist, she works as writer-at-large for GQ. Her journalism has been published in Harper's Bazaar, Spin, and The New York Times Magazine, and her stories have appeared in Esquire, Story, and the Paris Review.

Susan Nielsen, August 4, 2012 (view all comments by Susan Nielsen)
It's too bad to say so on a book that has seemed to capture the hearts of so many, but, honestly, I was so sick of this woman's rolling in her self-absorption, I nearly gave it up. If I finished the book it was because I felt I couldn't properly write a review otherwise. If you are in the mood for enhanced brooding, heart-seaching, and mapping the center of the universe, then perhaps this is the book for you. It distresses me to think that its popularity may reflect something in our national moment. Are we so depressed this kind of work passes for entertainment?

I was disappointed. Let me now go find a nice book of garden essays to repair the damage.
