Review quote

One of the best books I've read in the last five or ten years... Wild is angry, brave, sad, self-knowing, redemptive, raw, compelling, and brilliantly written, and I think it's destined to be loved by a lot of people, men and women, for a very long time. Nick Hornby Epic and moving Sunday Times Funny and fierce Independent on Sunday Extraordinary... Truly wild: dirty, beautiful, serene Sunday Telegraph It's not very manly, the topic of weeping while reading... Wild pretty much obliterated me Scotsman A deeply honest memoir about mother and daughter, solitude and courage, and regaining footing, one step at a time Vogue Amazing and inspiring Nicole Kidmanshow more
