_______________'Gilbert takes us on a grit-strewn ride into the heart of Country and Western territory: good old boys, cowgirls, dingy bars, the backwaters and empty plains of America' - Sunday Times'The heroes of Pilgrims, Elizabeth Gilbert's gimmickless story collection, are everyday seekers...This first-time writer has all the hallmarks of a great writer: sympathy, wit, and an amazing ear for dialogue' - Harper's Bazaar_______________The very first book by the multimillion-copy bestselling author of Eat Pray Love: A memorable collection of short stories of individuals pursuing their own American pilgrimageThe cowboys, strippers, labourers and magicians of Pilgrims are all on their way to being somewhere, or someone, else. Some are browbeaten and world-weary, others are deluded and naïve, yet all seek companionship as fiercely as they can. A tough East Coast girl dares a western cowboy to run off with her; a matronly bar owner falls in love with her nephew; an innocent teenager falls hopelessly for the local bully's sister. These are tough heroes and heroines, hardened by their experiences, who struggle for their epiphanies. Yet hope is never far away and though they may act blindly, they always act bravely. Sharply drawn and tenderly observed, Pilgrims is filled with Gilbert's inimitable humour and warmth.

Recenzii

'Gilbert takes us on a grit-strewn ride into the heart of Country and Western territory: good old boys, cowgirls, dingy bars, the backwaters and empty plains of America'
The distinctive cant of Gilbert's stories recalls the off-kilter worlds of T. Coraghessan Boyle, and she embraces the bizarre and fabulous with similar enthusiasm ... But blunt summaries capture none of Gilbert's subtlety. Whether trashing those on high or celebrating those below, she moves stealthily, avoiding the temptation to grandstand, moralize or, especially, patronize
The heroes of Pilgrims, Elizabeth Gilbert's gimmickless story collection, are everyday seekers...This first-time writer has all the hallmarks of a great writer: sympathy, wit, and an amazing ear for dialogue
'A superior collection of stories about women who are as tough as they look, though perhaps not quite as tough as they think they are'
