Bestselling Author │ Short Story Writer │ Memoirist
Annie Proulx has called her “a writer of incandescent talent.” The author of 2006's runaway bestseller Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert is unquestionably one of her generation's most beloved memoirists. Eat, Pray, Love, which has sold more than ten million copies worldwide, is Gilbert's memoir of soul-searching and international exploration in the wake of her devastating divorce. Gilbert is a distinguished journalist who began her career writing for Harper's Bazaar, Spin, the New York Times Magazine, and GQ. In 2002, her book The Last American Man was a Finalist for the National Book Award. Committed, the deeply satisfying follow-up to Eat, Pray, Love, tells the story of Gilbert's unexpected plunge into second marriage—this time to Felipe, the man with whom she falls in love at the end of Eat, Pray, Love. Part memoir, part meditation on marriage as a sociohistorical institution, Committed is rich with Gilbert's bright, engaging voice and characteristic playful humor. Gilbert's latest book, The Signature of All Things, is a sweeping story of botany, exploration and desire, spanning across much of the 19th century. Her first novel in twelve years, it has been lauded by O Magazine as “the novel of a lifetime" and praised by the Washington Post as "that rare literary achievement: a big, panoramic novel about life and love that captures the idiom and tenor of its age." It was named as one of the Best Books of 2013 by The New York Times, O Magazine, NPR, and Time Magazine.
