We're wishing a belated happy tenth birthday to Cheryl Strayed's memoir Wild.
The book was released on March 20, 2012, which Strayed's editor reminded her of this past Sunday via text message.
It prompted the author to revisit her very first draft, and what she found most compelling were the scenes that didn't make it into the final, published version.
Strayed shares one such scene from Wild's first draft, about a last visit to Portland and an ex-lover before she took off on the Pacific Crest Trail, on her Substack as a thank-you to all who read her book.
