Review:

Praise for Eat Pray Love:
 
“Gilbert’s prose is fueled by a mix of intelligence, wit and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible.”Jennifer Egan, The New York Times Book Review

“A meditation on love in its many forms ... her extraordinary journey lets even the most cynical reader dare to dream.” – Los Angeles Times
 
Praise for The Signature of All Things:
 
“A bracing homage to the many natures of genius and the inevitable progress of ideas, in a world that reveals its best truths to the uncommonly patient minds.”– Barbara Kingsolver, The New York Times Book Review
 
“Raucously ingenious...Signature is not just a historical novel that spans two centuries and many geographies.  It’s a 500-page novel of ideas...I found unshackled joy on every page.” -- The Chicago Tribune
                                                                     
“A delightful book...one of the best of the year...Gilbert marries the technical, cultural and spiritual with a warm, frankly funny wit that adds richness to all three.”– “All Things Considered,” NPR
