it was amazing
bookshelves: memoir
Recommended for: everyone
Read in September, 2008

Falling Through the Earth is a memoir so skillfully wrought you can't help but becoming enraptured in her story. She writes about her father who served in Vietnam and came home with more than a few emotional scars. She deftly handles two stories (one of the young Danielle and then the older Danielle who visits Vietnam) and gradually merges them together to create a cathartic release by the end.

Wow. Her language is gorgeous. Her craft is beyond admirable. And at the heart of it all, it's thematically relatable to many people, I'm sure.
