The Word for Woman Is Wilderness is unlike any published work I have read, in ways that are beguiling, audacious ... rises to its own challenges in engaging intellectually as well as wholeheartedly with its questions about gender, genre and the concept of wilderness. The novel displays wide reading, clever writing and amusing dialogue. -- Sarah Moss * Guardian * Refreshing and funny and unlike anything else. I feel as if I've been waiting for this book for a long time -- Daisy Johnson, author of Fen A gripping feminist reimagining of Into the Wild. * Elle * Clever, funny and thoughtful -- Will Ashon, author of Strange Labyrinth A thinking woman's adventure story ... [Andrews' prose has] grace and reflection ... beautiful, thoughtful, and often humorous. -- Lucy Scholes * The National * This is not reconciliatory prose. It doesn't seek to please. It's not asking for your acceptance or the benediction of this review. It is far stronger than that. It is a quiet, sardonic, funny, fluid text, a visionary book, that shows us the future is in fact already here. * Caught by the River *
