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 in her final days. It concludes with a beautifully rendered account of Weaver's memorial that Glen David Gold, writing in the Los Angeles 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.

About the Author:

Anders Nilsen was born in New Hampshire and now lives in Chicago. He has a BFA in painting and illustration from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. He is the author of the New York Times Notable Book Big Questions and Dogs and Water.

From Booklist:

Six years after its limited first edition, Nilsen issues a general edition of his very affecting, quirky, and beautiful memorial of his fiancée, Cheryl Weaver, who died too young and too quickly of cancer. It is a mixed-media composition, beginning with some postcards she sent him and his hilarious letter to his sister about a weekend camping trip fraught with tiny disasters. Then come photos and anecdotes from an accidental New Jersey stopover, a comics account of a trip to the Angoulême comics festival, plenty of photos from his and Cheryl’s subsequent French travels, his journal entries about her hospitalization, the portrayal in comics of scattering her ashes, four of his drawn-upon postcards to her, an old note to her envisioning her surviving him, the hand-lettered first edition afterword, and the typeset author’s note for this edition. The climax of the book is the scattering of her ashes, to which Anders gives maximum impact and concentration by never attending to a single face, though many panels are crowded with people. A gem of modest, ordinary sublimity. --Ray Olson
