Now that Squid Game is over... What's next?
Singapore Writers Festival 2021 will feature a host of Netflix series Queer Eye, Tan France and writers such as Julia Quinn, creator of the addictive Bridgerton series; Elizabeth Gilbert, bestselling author of the memoir Eat, Pray, Love, and more, whose books have all found its way to Netflix one way or another.
Of course, they are not forgetting the Kpop and local scenes as well!
2. Eat, Pray, Love
Elizabeth Gilbert had everything a modern woman is supposed to dream of having – a husband, a house, a successful career – yet like so many others, she found herself lost, confused, and searching for what she really wanted in life. Newly divorced and at a crossroads, Gilbert steps out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life, embarking on a journey around the world that becomes a quest for self-discovery. While travelling, she discovers the true pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy, the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of true love in Indonesia.
You can meet the real Elizabeth Gilbert where she brings us into the glitzy world of 1940s’ New York in her latest title, City of Girls, in which the protagonist muses, “At some point in a woman’s life, she just gets tired of being ashamed all the time. After that, she is free to become whoever she truly is.” Is there a line between seeking pleasure and making bad decisions?
