This book is as loose and sexy and dark as an early Lucinda Williams song. I can’t wait to get swept up in the journey.

“This summer I’m looking forward to reading Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed (she’s the voice behind the thought-provoking and beautiful advice column, Dear Sugar). Strayed remembers the months she spent when she was 26 hiking alone on the PCT, which zigzags its way from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington. ‘This book is as loose and sexy and dark as an early Lucinda Williams song. It’s got punk spirit and makes an earthy and American sound,’ says Dwight Garner in a recent review of Strayed’s memoir for The New York Times. I can’t wait to get swept up in her journey.”
