I know it looks like I am on a “chic lit” binge at the moment, but I actually read this book a few years ago.  At that time I was binging on books about people sojourning in the woods.  This is the book that severed as dessert for that binge.  If by some seriously strange turn of events, I ever found myself responsible for teaching a course on memoir writing I would use this book. I found it all powerfully staged.  I have one major complaint about this book.  It was published six years after Eat Pray Love, and I am personally convinced her editor or somebody had the chapter added.  It’s a rather pointless chapter. But I really love this book.  I also joke every time this book is discussed that a better subtitle would be “Cheryl Makes Questionable Choices.”  Rock on oh Queen of the PCT.
