Founder of the innovative Travel Bookshop that formed the setting for the movie Notting Hill, Sarah Anderson has written several travel books. At the age of 10, Anderson's arm was amputated as a result of a rare but virulent strain of cancer. Published this month, Halfway to Venus dwells upon the author's experience as a single-armed independent traveller, reflecting on other famous amputees and their prosthetic limbs in life and literature. I've realised that there's rather a heavy bias towards American writers - but whatever their origins they're all superb. The contemporary writer whose writings about the wild I most admire. Robert Macfarlane stuck to Britain for this exploration and the way he weaves literature he lectures in English at Cambridge into his ramblings is seductive; he shows us that wilderness needn't be on an epic scale but can be found almost everywhere we care to look. I can't mention him without also recommending his previous book Mountains of the Mind: A History of Fascination

1. The Wild Places by Robert Macfarlane
I love urbane social comedies and absurd novels about office work and many kinds of fiction set mostly indoors and in town. But if I get snowed into a cabin with only one kind of reading at hand, I want a big stack of books that take wilderness and wildness seriously, outdoor novels a bit wild themselves. Novels set in strange forests as surprising and wondrous as real ones. Feral novels that make more of nature than a screen on which to project the emotional lives of human characters. I try to get that wildness into my own fiction, most recently with Scratch , my attempt at a feral, strange forest novel. And I try to find it as often as possible in my reading. The first time I read Wild Life it blew me away and it does so again each time I return.
Reading is one of my favorite things to do. After my kids go to bed, I spend most evenings planted firmly on the sofa, book in one hand, cup of tea in the other. She tells the story of Eustace Conway, who left his comfortable suburban life and moved into the wilderness to be completely self-sufficient at age seventeen. He hunted for his food, lived in a teepee, and sewed his own buckskin clothes. Conway still lives in the North Carolina forest, driven by a personal mission to educate Americans about how they can return to the land, reconnect with their roots, and live a less destructive lifestyle.
