Reviews:

NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

?If a more likable 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.? by Jennifer Egan

TIME MAGAZINE

?An engaging, intelligent and entertaining memoir?her account of her time in India is beautiful and honest and free of patchouli-scented obscurities.? by Lev Grossman

LOS ANGELES TIMES

?Gilbert?s journey is full of mystical dreams, visions and uncanny coincidences?Yet for every ounce of self-absorption her classical New-Age journey demands, Gilbert is ready with an equal measure of intelligence, humor and self-deprecation?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.? by Erika Schickel
