Elizabeth Gilbert (born July 18, 1969) is an author and an American journalist. She is best familiar with her 2006 memoir, Eat Pray Love which has been translated into over 30 languages and has sold over 12 million copies. The novel was also made into a movie of the same name in 2010.
Around the timeframe Elizabeth Gilbert turned thirty, she went through an earlier-offensive middle-life crisis. She had everything an educated, ambitious American woman was supposed to want— a successful career, a husband, a house. But instead of feeling fulfilled and happy, she was absorbed with confusion, panic, and grief. She went through a crushing depression, a divorce, another breakdown of love, and the destruction of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be.
To recover from all this, Gilbert took a progressive step. In order to give herself space and time to discover out who she really was and what she really required, she quit her job, got rid of her belongings, and take on a yearlong journey around the world—all alone. Eat, Pray, Love is the absorbing history of that year. Her goal was to visit three places where she could scrutinize one aspect of her own nature set against the scenery of a culture that has traditionally done that one thing very well. In Rome, she is learning to speak Italian, studied the art of pleasure, and gaining the twenty-three happiest pounds of her own world. India was for the art of faithfulness, and with the assistance of a native guru and an amazingly wise cowboy from Texas, she started on four unbroken months of spiritual exploration. In Bali, she studied the skill of balance between divine predominance and worldly enjoyment. She fell in love the best way—unexpectedly and also became the pupil of an elderly medicine man. A moving memoir and intensely articulate of self-discovery, Eat, Pray, Love is about what can occur when you claim responsibility for your own happiness and put an end to trying to live in a copy of society’s ideals.
