I just read an article in Oprah's Book Club 2.0 online newsletter that I thought you would enjoy. It describes Elizabeth Gilbert's new novel, which is quite a departure from her two recent memoirs. As you may know, originally she wrote a collection of short stories Pilgrims, a novel Stern Men, and a non-fiction book The Last American Man, before hitting it big with Eat, Pray, Love.
Set in the Victorian Era of Darwin and Dickens, her new novel The Signature of All Things follows Alma, whose budding interest in moss takes her farther from her Pennsylvania farm than she ever thought possible. The article gives you a sneak peek into the novel, its inspiration, and Gilbert's rambling Victorian home in New Jersey, her gardens, and her "skybrary."
Fans were given the chance to vote for the book cover. Which one do you think they chose? Visit her website to find out. The new novel will be released in 6 days!
