The Word for Woman Is Wilderness

The Word for Woman Is Wilderness

"Just thirty pages into The Word for Woman is Wilderness, I couldn't make heads or tails of it, which, in my mind, is the best thing a novel can accomplish. But maybe 'novel' isn't the best word—perhaps a globetrotting, Thoreauvian whodunnit? A bricolage of literary, feminist, and anthropological thought, gazing out the throat of the anthropocene? I've roamed this earth for a few decades and never found anyone who writes or thinks like Abi Andrews. Don't anticipate this book. Fear it. Love it."
