The first international publications of 'The Way Through the Woods: On Mushrooms and Mourning' coming this fall.

August 13 2018

The international hit, The Way Through the Woods: On Mushrooms and Mourning, is finally ready for print, with the first publication launching this month in Finland. Followed by Danish, Dutch, and Swedish in September; French, Spanish and Catalan the following months. The final four publications are due next year. The editor at Spiegel & Grau, Penguin Randomhouse, Mengfei Chen, has written in excitement of the book: “From the first sentence, I was struck by Woon’s irresistible voice. She is a natural storyteller, and The Way Through the Woods is a unique and thoroughly fascinating exploration of the connections between nature, grief, and healing. I couldn’t be more pleased to be working with Woon on bringing this gem of a book to the American reader.” Congratulations and thanks to all the dedicated and enthusiastic publishers and translators, and to Woon Long!
