This One Wild and Precious Life with Sarah Wilson

An evening with New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson, celebrating her book, This One Wild and Precious Life, on Saturday 2 Sept

This latest title from Sarah Wilson – New York Times bestselling author of First, We Make the Beast Beautiful and I Quit Sugar – is a radical spiritual guidebook designed to help us through crazy times.


She argues that the climate crisis, the pandemic, AI advances, conspiracy theories and political polarisation have left many of us in a state of ‘spiritual PTSD’, feeling disconnected from one another.

Following in the footsteps of Nietzsche, Wordsworth and other favourite poets and thinkers, she spends three years hiking around the world, venturing deeper into nature and going to ‘spiritual edges’. She emerges with a blueprint for living a wilder, more connected life.

‘A brilliantly raw book that reveals the truth of what really matters’ Fearne Cotton

‘This One Wild and Precious Life is what the UK has been waiting for; Sarah Wilson’s journey is inspiring’ Rio Ferdinand

‘Sarah Wilson is a force of nature who has taken her pain and grief about our sick and troubled world and alchemised it into action, advocacy, poetry and love’ Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love

‘Essential reading – I defy you not to feel deeply inspired’ Katherine May, author of Wintering

‘I’ve encountered no other book that articulates with so much passion or clarity the unique feeling of this moment in history. The ideal guidebook for our long overdue journey back to nature, to each other, and to sanity’ Oliver Burkeman
