Editorial Reviews

Review

"In this luminous memoir Shuly Cawood dives into the deepest of waters--health and illness, the bonds of family, intimacy and its unraveling--and emerges with a treasure. The writing is beautiful, both spare and lush, and the wisdom to be discovered there is genuine and hard won. The Going and Goodbye is a revelation." --Matthew Goodman, New York Times bestselling author of Eighty Days

"These true stories about love and loss will recalibrate your heart....There's language that surprises and stuns, that forces you to catch your breath again and again and holds the very rhythm of sensation....This is a brave writer who moves lyrically and fearlessly toward self-knowledge, a writer who is willing to probe the darkness in the chambers of her own heart, not just the hearts of others. Hope in this book is realistic and hard-won. This is a voice you can trust with your life." --Joyce Dyer, author of Gum-Dipped and Goosetown

"This memoir ranges all over the past while creating a steady sense of forward motion through the narrator's life. I think of these two streams of energy as lyric and narrative, the circling and moving forward. The two have a great dynamic here, which keeps this memoir surprising and fresh." --Kathryn Rhett, author of Souvenir and Immortal Village

"In this lovely memoir the narrator, although strongly rooted in a particular place, is always on the move into the unknown....The lyrical, fluid style immediately invites the reader along for the ride. I read this with great pleasure!" --Bobbie Ann Mason, PEN/Hemingway Award winning author of In Country

"Shuly Cawood is [a] prolific poet [and] she brings that approach to her memoir The Going and Goodbye. Cawood, who grew up in Yellow Springs, distills her thoughts into potent paragraphs spilling over with emotions and intense imagery....She writes about love; wanting it, finding it, giving it and losing it....Her quest for happiness and security are universal themes that will resonate with readers....This book is a treasure." --Dayton Daily News

"The Going and Goodbye is a gorgeously conceived expedition of a book...As [the author] opens her heart to us we can sense our own hearts are slowly opening too...Such is the power and the beauty of the narrative art and arc within this beautiful memoir....If you read a lot of books then you probably know that feeling you can get when you encounter a writer who has written every single word with exquisite care and precision...There are no wasted words here." --Yellow Springs News

About the Author
