The Heroine’s Journey
Heroes have to set out into the big wide world and have adventures in order to become heroes – otherwise there’d be no story. But what about heroines?
Doris Dörrie recounts three journeys, to San Francisco, Japan and Morocco, describing what it’s like to travel the world as a woman. Facing the unknown and dealing with the foreign always means confronting your own fears, privileges and losses. But in the process, you become the heroine of your own tale.
