‘Refreshing and funny and unlike anything else. I feel as if I’ve been waiting for this book for a long time’
Daisy Johnson, Booker Prize shortlisted author of Everything Under
Nineteen-year-old Erin has never been this far from home. From the Midlands to Iceland, Greenland, Newfoundland, on across the entire breadth of the American continent … as Erin’s one-woman odyssey leads her towards a lonely cabin in the wilds of Alaska, she charts the changing landscapes of her own mind – and reimagines not just a woman’s place in society, but humanity’s place on planet Earth.
Filled with a sense of hope and wonder, The Word for Woman is Wilderness is a funny, frank and tender account of a young woman in uncharted territory.
‘A thinking woman’s adventure story … beautiful, thoughtful, and often humorous’ Lucy Scholes, The National
