Elizabeth Gilbert, writer of the bestselling book Eat, Pray, Love, wrote a sad note to fans on social media last week. Her love story with the man in that book has reached its conclusion, and the epilogue is now being written in the form of a divorce.
Gilbert said she felt forced to share the intimate detail because this is what made her famous. Eat, Pray, Love is the account of a divorced woman traveling the world in search of meaning. It was made into a hit movie starring Julia Roberts and Gilbert became the guru of bourgeois spirituality and simple secrets. Just eat, pray, love ... and move on.
