Don’t Let Me Go is a book about hills and valleys, relationships and life. If you are looking for a good, easy read, this is a great book.
David Pierce, the husband of Chonda Pierce (the comedienne), wrote this coming of age-style book about his relationship with his daughter, and in parts, about his relationship with his self.
Here’s one of the many great passages:
“The mountaintops we call great. They’re high. And we can see forever – but it’s always tiny stuff, far away. Our hearts pound and we feel happy. With the exception of the Snickers bars and the sausages, there’s not a lot of detail on the mountaintop. But in the valleys, we remember details: the flood-warning signs, rain, mud, cold, clogged sinuses, lumpy bedding, cold noodles, twisted ankles, switchbacks that don’t seem to end,… But up here – it’s truly “great” and the details from below are suddenly tiny, small and even insignificant.”
