Made homeless in her fifties, Raynor Winn never meant anyone other than her husband to read her account of the long walk that followed. Five years later, she’s written two bestsellers – and started a new adventure on a farm in Cornwall. Alice Vincent visits the author and partner Moth to talk about The Wild Silence, starting again and what it really means to find a home.
Chloé Zhao made history when she became the first woman of Asian descent to win an Oscar for Best Director. Here are some books that offer insight into her Best Picture-winning film.
Just days after Raynor Winn learns that her husband of 32 years is terminally ill, their home is taken away and they lose their business. In The Salt Path, she explains how walking the 630 mile long South West Coast Path changed her perception of 'home,' and led to a journey of salvation.
Since travelling the South West Coastal Path, Raynor Winn has become a regular long-distance walker and writes about nature, homelessness and wild camping. Her first book, The Salt Path, was a Sunday Times bestseller and shortlisted for the 2018 Costa Biography Award. In The Wild Silence, Raynor explores readjusting to life after homelessness. She lives in Cornwall with her husband Moth.
