Eat, Pray, Love, Rinse, Repeat

Michael Cooper, ex-husband of Elizabeth Gilbert — she of the gazillion-selling Eat, Pray, Love, about her post-divorce global journey — has sold his own book. Displaced will tell his side of the story, which, it turns out, is also global: “According to [publisher] Hyperion, [Cooper] goes on a ’search for purpose’ that leads him through the Middle East and other developing countries.”

Whatever happened to getting over a relationship by “searching for purpose” at the end of a bar with plenty of Otis Redding on the jukebox? You know, something like: Cirrhosis and “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long”: A Memoir.
