ELIZABETH GILBERT’s “prose is fueled by a mix of intelligence, wit, and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible” (The New York Times Book Review). Her work has been a finalist for the National Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the PEN/Hemingway Award. Gilbert is best known for her memoir Eat Pray Love – “a wonderful book, brilliant and personal, rich in spiritual insight” (Anne Lamott) – following a difficult divorce and travels through Italy, India, and Indonesia. Translated into more than 30 languages, the book was an international bestseller, with more than 12 million copies sold worldwide. Her novel The Signature of All Things, “a masterly tale of overflowing sensual and scientific enthusiasms in the nineteenth century” (Time), was named a best book of 2013 by The New York Times, O: The Oprah Magazine, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, and The New Yorker. She comes to Houston to read from City of Girls, her new novel set in the golden age of the theatre world in 1940s New York City that “embraces…the power of a woman breaking from a traditional path” and is “loaded with humor and insight” (Newsday). Gilbert wears many hats – “bestselling writer, matron saint of divorced women, modern symbol of follow-your-bliss wisdom” (Cosmopolitan) – and according to Jennifer Egan, “if a more likable writer than Gilbert is currently in print, I haven’t found him or her.”
