MOST husbands call their wives to ask what cut of steak to bring home from the grocery store. Elizabeth Gilbert’s husband rang her from Vietnam and asked, “Do I have permission to buy a 7,000-pound marble Buddha?”
Her answer: “You don’t need permission, ever.”
That eight-foot-high Buddha now beams down beatifically outside the entrance to Two Buttons, a store jam-packed with curios from Southeast Asia. Ms. Gilbert, the author of the 2006 memoir “Eat, Pray, Love,” owns the shop in Frenchtown, N.J., with her husband, José Nunes.
Ms. Gilbert is far better known as a writer than shopkeeper. “Eat, Pray, Love” chronicled the healing year she spent traveling through Italy, India and Indonesia after a wrenching divorce; her best-selling follow-up memoir, “Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace With Marriage,” was published in January.
