Elizabeth Gilbert's picture

Elizabeth Gilbert


USA flag (1969 - )
Sister of Catherine Gilbert Murdock

Elizabeth Gilbert was born in Waterbury, Connecticut, and grew up on a small family Christmas tree farm. From earliest memory, all she ever wanted to do was write. It is quite possibly genetic: Her sister, Catherine Gilbert Murdock, also became a writer, and is today the author of such beloved young adult novels as DAIRY QUEEN and PRINCESS BEN.

Elizabeth Gilbert lives in rural New Jersey with her husband, her garden, and far too many beloved pets. She is at work on a new novel.

Elizabeth Gilbert recommends

The Observations (2006)
Jane Harris
"The Observations is a deliriously captivating tale of sex, ghosts, lies, and mysteries. But that’s not the good part; the good part is our narrator Betsy, a fifteen-year-old Irish made living in Scotland with the freshest, sharpest, naughtiest, and most charming voice you’re apt to encounter in literature in a good long time. I adored her and couldn’t put her story down."

The Typist (2010)
Michael Knight
"The Typist is Knight's best book yet. It reads with a combination of urgency and a quiet, rush-less pace to the novel's slow reveal. There is not a misstep, not a mislaid sentence. I believed and breathed every single word. This book awed me."
