The debut by the number one New York Times best-selling author of Eat Pray Love.
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 naïve, 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 bully's 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 Gilbert's inimitable humour and warmth.

I didn't get it
I really enjoyed all of the other EG books I read/listened to....so I had high expectations....I think maybe I didn't understand this one, or perhaps if I'd made it further through, I would have enjoyed it in the end....but other than some interesting ish portraits of people, this book didn't move me.
