Falling Room (American Lives) Paperback – September 1, 2006
"Falling Room is a wild romp of memoir, politics, and experimentation. This is a book about the origin of protest--about finding, challenging, understanding, and ultimately forgiving the father and the fatherland. It's full of tremendous talent, beauty, and energy."--Sarah Messer, author of Bandit Letters and Red House "Time and again I came across passages that just floored me--images that were so vivid and right that they catapulted me right to the scene of the story, turns of phrases that captured some elemental truth about the way things are, the way people think and behave."--Philip Gerard, author of Cape Fear and Creative Nonfiction: Researching and Crafting Stories of Real Life "In Falling Room, Eli Hastings moves beyond mere anger to write with a passion that fuses pain and tenderness, anger and sympathy. I emerged out the other side of this immensely readable book bruised but full of wild hope."--Sebastian Matthews, author of In My Father's Footsteps "Falling Room is musical. It is worldly. It is intimate and concerned. Again and again I was impressed by the great democracy and tenderness in these pages, by these essays' remodeling of the urban and the pastoral, by their revelation of landscapes disparate and glaring. I finished feeling I'd been party to a mad and jubilant trip. A writer like Eli Hastings gives me hope in many things."--Brad Land, author of Goat: A Memoir
