Pilgrims (Bloomsbury) – Elizabeth Gilbert | Pilgrims Now Elizabeth Gilberts thousands of UK fans can enjoy her very first book – a collection of short stories of memorable individuals pursuing their own American pilgrimage The 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 na?ve, 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 bullys 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 Gilberts inimitable humour and warmth.
