Cheryl Strayed’s memoir “Wild” was a runaway hit in more ways than one. It was so tremendously popular that it ended up being made into a film starring Reese Witherspoon. Its narrative followed the author’s decision, after the death of her mother, to run away from her life and marriage and walk the Pacific Crest Trail alone. It was during that trek that, impelled by a desire to leave the difficulties of her past behind and start over anew, she changed her last name. Because it was impossible for her to go on as before, Cheryl strayed, and went on as she never had.
