Description

The #1 "New York Times" bestselling follow-up to "Eat, Pray, Love"--an intimate and erudite celebration of love.
Look out for Elizabeth Gilbert's new book, "Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear," coming on September 22, 2015 At the end of her memoir "Eat, Pray, Love," Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian living in Indonesia. The couple swore eternal love, but also swore (as skittish divorce survivors) never to marry. However, providence intervened in the form of a U.S. government ultimatum: get married, or Felipe could never enter America again. Told with Gilbert's trademark humor and intelligence, this fascinating meditation on compatibility and fidelity chronicles Gilbert's complex and sometimes frightening journey into second marriage, and will enthrall the millions of readers who made "Eat, Pray, Love" a number one bestseller.
