PREVIEW: Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic is her ode to creativity and inspiration. Gilbert, who's garnered acclaim most famously for her book Eat Pray Love, seeks to impart to readers that the act of artistic creation does not have be a tortured, complicated process: it's better to just do, and worry about questions of merit or quality only once a work is actually finished. Gilbert opens the book with an anecdote on Jack Gilbert, a poet with no relationship to the author and only a fraction of her notoriety and success.
