Elizabeth M. Gilbert is an American author best known for her 2006 memoir, Eat, Pray, Love, which as of December 2010 has spent 199 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list. Her 1997 GQ article, “The Muse of the Coyote Ugly Saloon”, a memoir of Gilbert’s time as a bartender at the very first Coyote Ugly table dancing bar located in the East Village section of New York City, was the basis for the feature film Coyote Ugly. In 2006, Gilbert published Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia, a chronicle of her year of “spiritual and personal exploration” spent traveling abroad. In 2015, Gilbert published Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, a self-help book that provides instructions on how to live a life as creative as hers. The book is broken down into six sections: Courage, Enchantment, Permission, Persistence, Trust, and Divinity. Advice in Big Magic focuses on overcoming self-doubt, avoiding perfectionism, and agenda setting, among other topics.
