Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia
This beautifully written, heartfelt memoir touched a nerve among bothreaders and reviewers. Elizabeth Gilbert tells how she made thedifficult choice to leave behind all the trappings of modern Americansuccess (marriage, house in the country, career) and find, instead,what she truly wanted from life. Setting out for a year to study threedifferent aspects of her nature amid three different cultures, Gilbertexplored 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. Byturns rapturous and rueful, this wise and funny author (whom Booklist calls “Anne Lamott’s hip, yoga- practicing, footloose younger sister”) is poised to garner yet more adoring fans.
