Neneh Cherry

I discovered this book when I was working on my third album, Man. The second verse of the track, “Woman,” grew out of a section of this book. “Women Who Run With the Wolves” is a book of mythical stories, tales, and wisdoms of women (though men can enjoy it too!). I use it as a map of our journey—I like to open it at any page—like spinning a globe and seeing where my finger lands.
