Elizabeth Gilbert has had an extraordinary journey: first an award-winning magazine journalist, she began her career writing for Harper’s Bazaar, Spin, The New York Times Magazine and GQ. She was a three-time finalist for the National Magazine Award, and an article she wrote in GQ about her experiences bartending became the basis for the movie Coyote Ugly. She published several books before Eat Pray Love, including a short story collection Pilgrims, a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway award and a book that moved Annie Proulx to call her “a young writer of incandescent talent”; Stern Men, a New York Times Notable Book; and The Last American Man, which was a finalist for both the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
