Coming off a dream adventure in North Carolina + landing in NYC to find that your little book got reviewed in Publisher’s Freaking Weekly = BEST WEEK EVER. (What’s next? A certain downtown bookstore saying yes to a reading already?)
I finally finished your book today. I’ve had it since it came out but knowing the subject, I’ve put off reading it. (With my wife’s chronic illness, I usually read to escape—not face—these emotions.) All I can say is thank you for writing this. Your experience moved me and is helping so many others.
I’m reading the final pages of ‘Splitting the Difference’ while I’m waiting for my flight at JFK. Decided I needed to stretch my legs and wander the gate hallways and what do I find? A restaurant named Revolución. Like many other readers, I am strangely connected to you and your story. Thank you for sharing it.
I had Barnes & Noble order your book and ship it to me in Rhode Island. Everybody keeps telling me they read it all in one sitting, so I am keeping it in the shipping box until the weekend (otherwise I know I won’t go to work tomorrow)! I’ve been so anxious to get the book because I know from following your blog that you paint riveting watercolors with your words. God bless!
