Eat, Pray, Love
One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia
It's no wonder this story caught the eye of producer Brad Pitt and movie star Julia Roberts, who gear up for the release of the Eat, Pray, Love film adaptation this summer. This beautifully written, heartfelt memoir touched a nerve among readers across the world. With sincerity and heart, Elizabeth Gilbert reveals how she made the difficult choice to leave behind all the trappings of modern American success (marriage, homes, career) and find, instead, what she truly wanted from life. Setting out alone, 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.
