Talk: Eat, Pray, Love

The Authors@Google program presents Elizabeth Gilbert author of "Eat, Pray Love": A New York Times bestseller, "Eat, Pray, Love" is the story of the author, in her early 30s, dividing a year equally among three dissimilar countries - Italy, India, and Bali, exploring her competing urges for earthly delights and divine transcendence. Sustaining a chatty, conspiratorial tone, Gilbert fully engages readers in the year's cultural and emotional tapestry as she details her exotic tableau with history, anecdote and impression.
