The Ski Jumpers on tour

Independent bookstores are the seat and soul of the literary community, and I'm delighted that I'll be visiting two dozen of them this fall to celebrate and promote The Ski Jumpers. Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, North Dakota, Illinois, I’m headed your way! I can't wait to see you!

Quotes by Peter Geye  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“And though I had misgiving--obvious ones, too--one overwhelming thing drove me on: on the borderlands, my father would need me as much as I'd need him. That's what made me so blindly ready to go off with him. What boy doesn't wait his whole childhood to walk alongside his father on equal terms?”
Peter Geye, Wintering

“There are so many similarities between [my father] and me, I can see that. But what I think really scares me are the countless ways I'm not like him. And because the past is getting farther and farther behind me, and the end coming closer and closer, I'm afraid I'll never meet the man in myself that I saw in him.”
Peter Geye, Wintering

“Someday your child will be full of wants. What they'll want more than anything, whether they know it or not, is for you to cherish them.”
Peter Geye, The Lighthouse Road
