The Word for Woman is Wilderness Summary

The Word for Woman is Wilderness by Abi Andrews

'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

The Word for Woman is Wilderness Reviews

The Word for Woman Is Wilderness is unlike any published work I have read, in ways that are beguiling, audacious ... rises to its own challenges in engaging intellectually as well as wholeheartedly with its questions about gender, genre and the concept of wilderness. The novel displays wide reading, clever writing and amusing dialogue. -- Sarah Moss * Guardian *
Refreshing and funny and unlike anything else. I feel as if I've been waiting for this book for a long time -- Daisy Johnson, author of Fen
A gripping feminist reimagining of Into the Wild. * Elle *
Clever, funny and thoughtful -- Will Ashon, author of Strange Labyrinth
A thinking woman's adventure story ... [Andrews' prose has] grace and reflection ... beautiful, thoughtful, and often humorous. -- Lucy Scholes * The National *
This is not reconciliatory prose. It doesn't seek to please. It's not asking for your acceptance or the benediction of this review. It is far stronger than that. It is a quiet, sardonic, funny, fluid text, a visionary book, that shows us the future is in fact already here. * Caught by the River *
Uplifting, with a thirsty curiosity, the writing is playful and exuberant. Riffing on feminist ideas but unlimited in scope, Andrews focuses our attention on our beautiful, doomed planet, and the astonishing things we have yet to discover. -- Ruth McKee * Irish Times *
