BOOK TO BE DISCUSSED: Torch by Cheryl Strayed.  In her memoir Wild, Cheryl Strayed wrote about her hike across the Pacific Crest Trail.  Her novel Torch is a fictionalized account of what led her to this journey. Jane Tompkins of the Andes Gazette says the book is “…a narrative drenched in grief and powered by love…And once you read Torch you’ll understand why Strayed needed to write both novel and memoir. Her mother is unforgettable.”
