TRAVELLING HOPEFULLY with Rachel Joyce & Raynor Winn
Sponsored by Sofas & Stuff
Life-changing journeys, real and imagined, are at the heart of the latest bestselling books by Rachel Joyce and Raynor Winn.
“The Wild Silence” is the sequel to Raynor’s prize-winning memoir, “The Salt Path”, in which she and her husband Moth try to come to terms with homelessness by walking the South West Coast Path. In her new book, Raynor relates what happens when she and Moth attempt to rediscover a sense of home once settled within four walls again.
“Miss Benson’s Beetle”, Rachel’s fifth novel, is the story of Margery Benson who, in a devastating moment of clarity, gives up her dead-end job and travels to the other side of the world in search of a golden beetle that may, or may not, exist.
Rachel and Raynor join us to discuss their writing, and how travelling both intrepidly and hopefully can help us find a sense of who we really are.
