    She calls her readers 'Dear Ones.'
    She said of the effect of ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ on her literary reputation, ‘What little respect I clawed my way to, I totally erased.’
    She grew up without a television or record player.
    A New York Times profile noted about her time as a freelance magazine contributor, ‘Veteran editors still talk with reverence about articles she wrote two decades ago.’.
