The Word for Woman Is Wilderness -- Abi Andrews
The Word for Woman is Wilderness is the most original and most enjoyable novel I’ve read in a long time. Abi Andrews has created in Erin, the novel’s protagonist, a singular narrative voice, one capable of employing and mixing diverse genres and modes with extraordinary aplomb and devastating humor. The World for Woman is Wilderness is part-novel, part-environmental treatise, part-feminist manifesto, part-scientific exploration. Altogether, it is a brilliant, entertaining, and often poignant account of one young woman’s journey to understand her relationship to the natural world and her place in contemporary society. Read this book. It is like nothing else you’ve ever read.
