Summary

At the age of thirty-one, Gilbert moved with her husband to the suburbs of New York and began trying to get pregnant, only to realize that she wanted neither a child nor a husband. Three years later, after a protracted divorce, she embarked on a yearlong trip of recovery, with three main stops: Rome, for pleasure (mostly gustatory, with a special emphasis on gelato); an ashram outside of Mumbai, for spiritual searching; and Bali, for ''balancing.'' These destinations are all on the beaten track, but Gilbert's exuberance and her self-deprecating humor enliven the proceedings: recalling the first time she attempted to speak directly to God, she says, ''It was all I could do to stop myself from saying, 'I've always been a big fan of your work.''' -The New Yorker ''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''A meditation on love in its many forms-love of food, language, humanity, God, and most meaningful for Gilbert, love of self.'' -Los Angeles Times
