Author Info
Elizabeth Gilbert
Elizabeth Gilbert is the author of the bestselling book EAT, PRAY, LOVE, which was made into a major motion picture starring Julia Roberts.
Praise
"COMMITTED is not a sociological work. There is no bibliography, and no footnotes slow you down. The book is bright and easygoing, propelled by Gilbert's lively curiosity; it's amusing, chatty and often insightful. It also provides a forum by which the opinionated Gilbert can vent about various issues...."
"Gilbert's frustrating, tense, uncertain and circuitous journey in COMMITTED reads like a heightened version of the second stage of love, when the euphoria has faded, daily habits begin to cloy and lovers become irritable. Bubbling to the surface time and again in this all too human story is a rich brew of newfound insight and wisdom and a priceless sense of humor."
"[W]hile EAT, PRAY, LOVE struck a chord by giving 'pleasers' permission to please themselves for a change, it's Gilbert's voice that accounted for its phenomenal success. Smart but unpretentious, funny, warm and generous, this is the same voice behind COMMITTED. By the end of one of her books, you feel as if she is your friend too. It's a pleasure to be back in that friend's company again."
From the Publisher
Annotation In this continuation of her bestselling sensation EAT, PRAY, LOVE, Elizabeth Gilbert comes to realize that finding the man of her dreams might be easier than staying married to him. Though both Gilbert and Felipe, the beau she met in Bali (the "Love" portion of her previous book), had sworn off the institute of marriage after disastrous divorces, they were actively encouraged to reconsider when Homeland Security threw Felipe out of the country. After trading vows, they each bucked against the restrictions of commitment, but eventually they discovered an unusual formula for wedded bliss. Amidst the pressure of following up a blockbuster, Gilbert proves that she does not require a grandiose quest through lush, exotic locales to evoke the pleasure and serenity of spiritual renewal.
