Sweet friends —
Such a happy, busy day — running around talking about novels and moss and travel and life and love…and then I just saw this really generous review of "The Signature of All Things."
There are SPOILERS, so proceed with care, but here is a nice sample:
"A radiant novel…that rare literary achievement, a big, panoramic novel about life and love that captures the idiom and tenor of its age…Like Victor Hugo or Emile Zola, Gilbert captures something important about the wider world in The Signature of All Things: a pivotal moment in history when progress defined us in concrete ways.”
Grateful! And now home for a nap, and then my first reading TONIGHT, at Union Square Barnes & Noble, at 7pm…
THE SIGNATURE OF ALL THINGS, by Elizabeth Gilbert
The author of ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ returns with a radiant novel about a 19th-century botanist.
