The Date Escape

No matter how bitter we become after divorce and heartbreak, we keep coupling. Author Elizabeth Gilbert went from stubbornly single globetrotting queen of anti-matrimony in her bestseller Eat, Pray, Love to the lady with a gold ring on her finger in her most recent work Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage.

Gilbert will be on-hand to discuss and sign the follow-up to her smash hit. “It's exceedingly likely that my greatest success is behind me,” says Gilbert at the 2009 TED conference. “That’s the kind of thought that could lead a person to start drinking gin at nine o'clock in the morning.”

Put the bottle down, Liz. Committed just hit number one on the New York Times’ bestseller list.
