Wild Geese
Soula Emmanuel

Wild Geese by debut novelist Soula Emmanuel tells the story of Phoebe Forde, an Irish trans woman living in Scandinavia.

Overeducated and underpaid, Phoebe is finally settling into her new life when she unexpectedly reconnects with her first (and only) girlfriend, igniting memories she thought she’d left behind.

Set over a single weekend, Wild Geese is an intimate and moving story about old flames, old lives, messy feelings and messier relationships, the comfort of home and the desire to start again somewhere else.
