Elizabeth Gilbert is feeling PRESSURE!

Making the rounds of the Web is a video of Elizabeth Gilbert speaking at the TED conference last week. The Book Beast put it up, calling it “Elizabeth Gilbert on Ruth Stone’s Genius” — a better take is “Elizabeth Gilbert is Feeling PRESSURE!”

Gilbert introduces her subject as “the emotional risks of creativity,” but the presentation is more like listening in on her own interior monologue as she faces the reception to the follow up to her hugely successful book, Eat, Pray, Love. Touchingly, she admits, “It’s exeedingly likely that my greatest success is behind me.”

Unfortunately, Gilbert offers no details about the book. EarlyWord called the publisher, who is being equally mum on pub date, subject and title. Meanwhile, it’s worth watching the video, if only to learn the origin of the cry, “Olé!”
