Allen & Unwin is delighted to be rushing into the Australian market for publication in July, the powerful, inspirational memoir Wild, the single book that Oprah Winfrey chose this month to launch her new ‘Oprah’s Book Club 2.0’ – ‘an interactive, multi-platform reading club that harnesses the power of social media, bringing passionate readers together to discuss inspiring stories’.
Told with great suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humour, Wild vividly captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on an eleven-hundred-mile solo hike that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
