Before Wild, Cheryl Strayed was Sugar, an advice columnist on
TheRumpus.net. But calling Sugar an advice columnist is like calling Willie Mays some guy who played baseball. Her responses were full – both in length, advice, and emotion. Tapping into her own life, Sugar’s letters are blunt, story-like, and heartbreaking lovely. I simply adored this book; my copy is dog-eared to death.
