Pequena biografia
Cheryl Strayed (born September 17, 1968) is an American memoirist, novelist, essayist and podcast host. The author of four books, her award-winning writing has been published widely in anthologies and major magazines.

Strayed's first book, the novel Torch, was published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in February 2006 to positive critical reviews. Torch was a finalist for the Great Lakes Book Award and selected by The Oregonian as one of the top ten books of 2006 by writers living in the Pacific Northwest. In October 2012, Torch was re-issued by Vintage Books with a new introduction by Strayed.

Strayed's second book, the memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, was published in the United States by Alfred A. Knopf on March 20, 2012. It has been translated into 30 languages. The week of its publication, Wild debuted at number 7 on the New York Times Best Seller list in hardcover non-fiction. In June 2012, Oprah Winfrey announced that Wild was her first selection for her new Oprah's Book Club 2.0. The next month Wild reached number 1 on the New York Times Best Seller list, a spot it held for seven consecutive weeks. The paperback edition of Wild, published by Vintage Books in March 2013, spent 126 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list. The book has also been a bestseller around the world—in the UK, Germany, Australia, Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Denmark and elsewhere. Wild won the Barnes & Noble Discover Award and the Oregon Book Award.

In July 2012, Vintage Books published Strayed's third book: Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar. The book debuted in the advice and self-help category on the New York Times Best Seller list at number 5 and it has also been published internationally. Tiny Beautiful Things is a selection of Strayed's popular "Dear Sugar" advice columns, which she wrote for no pay for the literary website The Rumpus from 2010 to 2012.

Strayed's fourth book, Brave Enough, was published in the United States by Knopf on October 27, 2015, and in the United Kingdom a week later by Atlantic Books. It debuted in the advice and self-help category on the New York Times Best Seller list at number 10.



Gone Girls, Found em Reading Books by Women (Fevereiro 2015)


Aos 22 anos, Cheryl Strayed achou que tivesse perdido tudo. Após a repentina morte da mãe, a família se distanciou e seu casamento desmoronou. Quatro anos depois, sem nada a perder, tomou a decisão mais impulsiva da vida: caminhar sozinha cerca de 1.770 quilômetros pela costa oeste dos Estados Unidos, do deserto de Mojave, no sul da Califórnia, atravessando Oregon até o estado de Washington. Cheryl não tinha experiência em caminhadas de longa distância e a trilha era pouco mais que uma linha num mapa. Mas guardava uma promessa - a promessa de juntar os pedaços de uma vida em ruínas. O relato de Cheryl captura a agonia, tanto física quanto mental, de sua incrível jornada; como a enlouqueceu e assustou e, principalmente, como a fortaleceu. Livre é uma história de sobrevivência e redenção, um retrato pungente do que a vida tem de pior e de melhor.… (mais)
