A transformational journey through Italy, India, and Bali searching for pleasure and devotion—the massive bestseller from the author of The Signature of All Things 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 Lamott’s hip, yoga- practicing, footloose younger sister”) is poised to garner yet more adoring fans.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An engaging, intelligent, and highly entertaining memoir.” Time
“This insightful, funny account of her travels reads like a mix of Susan Orlean and Frances Mayes.” Entertainment Weekly
“Gilbert’s exuberance and her self-deprecating humor enliven the proceedings.” New Yorker
“Gilbert’s prose is fueled by a mix of intelligence, wit, and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible.” New York Times Book Review
“A meditation on love in its many forms—love of food, language, humanity, God, and most meaningful for Gilbert, love of self.” Los Angeles Times
“[A] sprawling yet methodical travelogue of soul-searching and self-discovery…Sustaining a chatty, conspiratorial tone, Gilbert fully engages readers in the year’s cultural and emotional tapestry—conveying rapture with infectious brio, recalling anguish with touching candor—as she details her exotic tableau with history, anecdote, and impression.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“There is never a whiny or pious or dull moment because Gilbert is irreverent, hilarious, zestful, courageous, intelligent, and in masterful command of her sparkling prose….Gilbert’s sensuous and audacious spiritual odyssey is as deeply pleasurable as it is enlightening.” Booklist (starred review)
