Novella Carpenter visited Kalamazoo in April as one of two authors for 2014 Reading Together. When talking about her book Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer, she mentioned her next book, Gone Feral: Tracking My Dad through the Wild. It has now been published and is in our collection.
I’ve just started it, but fans of Novella’s are sure to appreciate this new title. She continues to write in a storytelling style about her dad and why he chose a life of solitude as she contemplates having a family of her own. Her untraditional life growing up certainly influenced her untraditional life described in Farm City.
This is a good companion to Farm City, although each stands alone.
