A Brief Look Inside:
Award-winning author Elizabeth Gilbert dazzles readers and fans with her 2015 nonfiction, New York Times bestseller Big Magic. Big Magic plays off the thoughts, ideals, and philosophies of which Gilbert wrote in Eat Pray Love and encourages readers to tap into their innate sense of creativity. Drawing from her experiences of traveling the world, living in a variety of places and circumstances, and meeting everyday people whose very ordinariness inspires those around them, Gilbert urges readers to face their fears and confront the obstacles to creativity in their lives. Big Magic is all about pushing through barriers to find the wonders that lie just beyond the tenacious but breakable bounds of anxiety, panic, and self-doubt, to dig deep for “strange jewels.”
