The Wild Other by Clover Stroud

Shortlisted for the Wainwright Prize

Clover Stroud grew up in rural Wiltshire surrounded by animals and family. When she was just sixteen her adored mother had a horrific riding accident which left her permanently brain-damaged, and suddenly Clover was left to fend for herself. She embarked on an extraordinary journey to heal her broken heart, courting men and danger through two marriages and five children.

The Wild Other is a grippingly honest account of love, sex and travelling to the darkest edges of human experience and back again. Powerful and deeply emotional, this is the story of an extraordinary life lived at its fullest.

"This story - so fierce and brave and visceral and raw - will stay with me forever. I loved it.

It’s in my top ten books I have ever read and Clover Stroud is a force of nature. "

Elizabeth Gilbert
