About the book:

At the age of thirty-one, Gilbert moved with her husband to the suburbs of New York and began trying to get pregnant, only to realize that she wanted neither a child nor a husband. Three years later, after a protracted divorce, she embarked on a yearlong trip of recovery, with three main stops: Rome, for pleasure (mostly gustatory, with a special emphasis on gelato); an ashram outside of Mumbai, for spiritual searching; and Bali, for balancing. These destinations are all on the beaten track, but Gilbert's exuberance and her self-deprecating humor enliven the proceedings: recalling the first time she attempted to speak directly to God, she says, It was all I could do to stop myself from saying, 'I've always been a big fan of your work. The New Yorker Gilbert s prose is fueled by a mix of intelligence, wit and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible. -The New York Times Book Review A meditation on love in its many forms love of food, language, humanity, God, and most meaningful for Gilbert, love of self. -Los Angeles Times

Description In Spanish:

Despues de un divorcio traumatico seguido de un desengano amoroso y en plena crisis emocional y espiritual, Elizabeth Gilbert decide empezar de nuevo y emprende un largo viaje que la llevara sucesivamente a Italia, la India e Indonesia, tres escalas geograficas que se corresponden con otras tantas etapas de busqueda interior. Este libro es la bitacora de esa doble travesia, en la que la autora descubrira el placer sensual de la buena mesa y la buena conversacion (la dolce vita romana), la paz interior alcanzada mediante la meditacion en Bombay y, por fin, el deseado equilibrio entre cuerpo y espiritu en Bali. Lucida y valiente novela autobiografica que ha sido un gran exito de ventas desde su publicacion en Estados Unidos, Come, reza, ama trata de lo que ocurre cuando decidimos ser artifices de nuestra felicidad y dejamos de intentar vivir segun los modelos que nos imponen. Elegido por el New Tork Times entre los cien libros relevantes de 2006, este diario personal es tambien una intensa y divertida reflexion sobre el amor y las muchas formas que puede adoptar.
