The Idealization of Our Endeavors

wild coverIt’s almost a year since I heard Cheryl Strayed speak at AWP in Chicago and The Ferry Building in San Francisco, almost a year since I absolutely devoured her memoir.  Today, I begin again.

WILD is my book club’s selection for next month, and I’m going to re-read it for that reason, but also because I read it so damned fast the first time around — couldn’t wait to start, couldn’t wait to finish — that I’m sure to find something new.  So here goes … back to that first chapter, back to those boots flying over the edge of the cliff.

If you have a few minutes, here’s a charming, inspiring interview with Cheryl.
