Time Interviews Cheryl Strayed


Cheryl Strayed talks with Time about Wild, Dear Sugar and Tiny Beautiful Things, how the Pacific Crest Trail has changed since 1995, current projects, and more.

“My intent was—stories, poems, they have been my guiding lights. I thought, why not give others what I’ve received from other literary forms? And that is stories that move me and allow me to see myself more deeply, and to see the human experience more profoundly. I’m just using my life as a way of showing those things.”

A more comprehensive version of the interview will be published in Time’s June 25th issue.
