"A must read for anyone hoping to live a creative life... I dare you not to be inspired to be brave, to be free, and to be curious." --PopSugar

From the worldwide bestselling author of Eat Pray Love the path to the vibrant, fulfilling life you've dreamed of.

Readers of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration and empowerment from Elizabeth Gilbert's books for years. Now this beloved author digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. With profound empathy and radiant generosity, she offers potent insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and let go of needless suffering. She shows us how to tackle what we most love, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives. Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism, Gilbert encourages us to uncover the "strange jewels" that are hidden within each of us. Whether we are looking to write a book, make art, find new ways to address challenges in our work, embark on a dream long deferred, or simply infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness and passion, Big Magic cracks open a world of wonder and joy.

From the Hardcover edition.

Like her previous memoirs, Eat, Pray, Love and Committed, Gilbert reads for the audio edition of her latest, which explores her creativity and life as a writer. Gilbert sounds appropriately playful, making the most of the books many humorous moments, but shes also capable of serious turns, such as when she describes some artists tortured and self-destructive methods of creation. Her performance mirrors the advice she gives in the book itself that an artist should be a disciplined half-ass: determined to show up every day and make the most of whatever gifts are on offer from the universe, but lighthearted enough to avoid attaching ones self-esteem to the reception of ones work. Overall, Gilberts performance feels like an intimate tête-à-tête with a wise friend. A Riverhead hardcover. (Nov.)
