Unquestionably one of her generation’s most beloved voices, Gilbert is the author of the runaway bestseller Eat Pray Love, which has sold more than ten million copies worldwide. Her latest bestseller, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, is a brilliant nonfiction treatise on creativity. Gilbert’s novel The Signature of All Things is a sweeping story of botany, exploration, and desire that spans much of the nineteenth century. It was lauded by O, The Oprah Magazine as “the novel of a lifetime” and named one of the best books of 2013 by The New York Times, O, The Oprah Magazine, NPR, and Time.
Before she wrote Eat Pray Love, Gilbert was a distinguished journalist who wrote regularly for Harper’s Bazaar, Spin, The New York Times Magazine, and GQ. Her book The Last American Man was a finalist for the National Book Award in 2002. Her new novel, about New York City showgirls in the 1940s, is out in fall 2019.
