Don't Go Where I Can't Follow
A STORY OF LOVE AND LOSS INSCRIBED IN PHOTOGRAPHS, POSTCARDS, LETTERS, AND BEDSIDE SKETCHES
In this collection of letters, drawings, and photos, Anders Nilsen chronicles a six-year relationship and the illness that brought it to an end.
Don’t Go Where I Can’t Follow is an eloquent appreciation of the time the author shared with his fiancée, Cheryl Weaver. The story is told using artifacts of the couple’s life together, including early love notes, simple and poetic postcards, tales of their travels in written and comics form, journal entries and drawings done in the hospital during her final days. It concludes with a beautifully rendered account of Weaver’s memorial that Glen David Gold, writing in the L.A. Times, called “16 panels of beauty and grace.” Don’t Go Where I Can’t Follow is a deeply personal romance, and a universal reminder of our mortality and the significance of the relationships we build.
Originally published as a limited edition in 2006, this collection includes a new afterword written by Nilsen, the author of the New York Times Notable Book and Lynd Ward Prize winning graphic novel Big Questions.
