Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
Detailed item info
Emotionally wrung-out from her divorce, the painful ending of a subsequent
love affair, and a general, long-standing feeling of malaise, novelist and
journalist Elizabeth Gilbert decides to recharge herself through a year's
worth of travel, believing that her return to happiness could be found
through exploring both physical gratification and spiritual peace and
then determining an appropriate balance between the two. She pursues the
first part of her program (eating, drinking, and talking) in Italy, the
second in India (joining an ashram), and the third in Bali (studying with
a medicine man).

"If a more likable writer than Gilbert is currently in print, I haven't found him or her. And I don't mean this as consolation prize....I mean that Gilbert's prose is fueled by a mix of intelligence, wit and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible, and makes the reader only too glad to join the posse of friends and devotees who have the pleasure of listening in."
