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 thirteen 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 next novel which will be published in June 2019, is City of Girls, a glittering coming-of-age epic stitched across the fabric of New York City in the 1940s.
