“If a more wonderful writer than Gilbert is currently in print, I haven’t found him or her… Gilbert’s prose is fueled by a mix of intelligence, wit, and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible, and makes the reader only too glad to join the posse of friends and devotees who have the pleasure of listening in.” —Jennifer Egan, The New York Times Book Review
“An engaging, intelligent, and highly entertaining memoir… [Her] account of her time in India is beautiful and honest and free of patchouli-scented obscurities.” —Lev Grossman, Time
“A meditation on love in many forms… Gilbert’s wry, unfettered account of her extraordinary journey makes even the most cynical reader dare to dream of someday finding God deep within a meditation cave in India, or perhaps over a transcendent slice of pizza.” —Los Angeles Times
“Gilbert’s memoir reads like the journal of your most insightful, funny friend as she describes encounters with healers, ex-junkies, and (yes!) kind, handsome men.” —Glamour

“This insightful, funny account of her travels reads like a mix of Susan Orlean and Frances Mayes… Gilbert’s journey is well worth taking.” —Entertainment Weekly (“A” rating)
