Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India, and Indonesia

Recovering after a string of unsuccessful relationships, Liz Gilbert takes a yearlong journey immersing herself in fabulous cuisine, divine transcendence, and then equanimity between body and soul. During her first four months, Liz learns Italian and masters the art of finding the best food in town. Next, she calms her “monkey mind” and reclaims her inner peace through a prolonged stay at her Guru’s ashram near Bombay, without traveling at all throughout the Indian subcontinent. Finally, Liz seeks balance between her inner and outer selves in Indonesia. Bali’s cultural peculiarities are an odd backdrop to her process of a reintegrating romantic intimacy into her life, but her wry and intelligent story-telling, spiced with a dash of self deprecation, propels her travelogue.
