Editorial Reviews

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

Format: Paperback
Anders Nilsen's book "Don't Go Where I Can't Follow" is Amazingly touching, I picked it up after reading a review of it in the Chicago Reader and never have I been steered so right. This book is about his relationship with his lover who becomes ill and then lost to disease. Anders shows us his true feelings and anguish, I too like the other review was moved to tears, so was my wife when I lent her the book. A must read if you can find it.

Format: Paperback
A wonderfully crafted book. I picked it up without knowing what it was about. I started chuckling to myself after reading the first few pages and by the end of it I was in the middle of a busy room with tears in my eyes! So amusing! So moving! I would highly recommend it! I was going to buy a copy for my boyfriend but they aren't even selling any copies.. what's up with that?

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Told through letters, pictures and postcards, In "Don't Go Where I Can't Follow" we get a glimpse into love and loss as Anders Nilsen shares with us stories and adventures he and his fiancé had before she passed away.
I initially bought this book thinking it would be a good autobiographical graphic novel... But it was more than that.
In fact, there was less than 20 pages of comics I think.
I didn't get what I expected, I got so much more.
The story was sad and heartbreaking and funny ( the unfortunate camping trip they went on left me smiling) and, though we had never met, left me with a sense that I'd known these people... If only for a brief amount of time.
And really, that's more than you could ask for from a great read.
Highly recommended.
