Q+A with Sarah Wilson, author of This One Wild + Precious Life
Rebel Review by co-founder Ben Keene
“‘This One Wild + Precious Life’ by Sarah Wilson is one the most beautifully messy, visceral, wise and wonder-inducing nonfiction books I’ve read. It’s not often you see such clarity in a person: an understanding of who they are, what they are committed to and why they must be this way. It shakes you.
But it’s also a real adventure. Via her many incident-filled treks and the businesses & campaigns that she’s built. Sarah is a kaleidoscope of human emotions, talents, and self-confessed faults.
The “Elephant in the Room” chapter is one of the best introductions to the climate crisis and why we must not simply ‘do our bit’, but do everything we can. Sarah’s painful fertility journey shows the fragility of life in a microcosm.
Her mindful wanderings, prescriptive wisdom – and actions – on helping us all reconnect to tackle our greatest challenge, is galvanising. This one wild and precious life is worth fighting for.”
Ben’s Score: 10/10
