Today on The Gist, we speak with Elizabeth Gilbert about the phenomenon of Eat, Pray, Love tattoos. We learn how she’s moved on creatively after selling 10 million copies, but isn’t going to stop taking requests for her hit. Her newest book, The Signature of All Things, is best enjoyed with a gin and tonic. For the Spiel, Mike comes out in favor of pleasure within reason.
