Marry, Divorce, Travel the World, Get a Book Deal
Remember Elizabeth Gilbert’s international bestseller Eat, Pray, Love, the travel memoir that follows Gilbert on a trip through Italy, India, and Indonesia as she tries to recover from her divorce? Apparently impressed with his ex-wife’s literary success, Michael Cooper just sold the rights to his memoir, Displaced. Publishers Weekly reports that Displaced recounts Cooper’s post-divorce “'search for purpose' that leads him through the Middle East and other developing countries,” proving once and for all that what's good for the goose is good for the gander. Hyperion plans to publish Displaced in fall 2010.
