Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir Eat, Pray, Love has been called “a generation’s instruction manual” by the Toronto Sun. Translated into more than 30 languages, Eat, Pray, Love has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. The book catapulted its author from a respected but little-recognized writer to a woman Oprah Winfrey has called a “rock star author.”
Fearless reporting skills and appreciation for working-class values color Elizabeth’s writing, while a persistent longing to understand the world and her place in it has made her not merely a writer but an explorer. Her writing has been published in Harper’s Bazaar, Spin, and the New York Times Magazine. She was a stalwart at GQ, producing pieces that grew into books, as well as the film Coyote Ugly.
Elizabeth’s work has received many accolades and esteemed awards throughout her career, beginning with her first book, Pilgrims, a New York Times Most Notable Book and recipient of the Ploughshares prize, among many other honors.
