Walking Distance takes on the hard task of retelling what it was like for Lisa Holtby and her husband, the author, David Hlavsa, when they lose their first child, James, to a stillbirth.
In prose that is both deft and honest, Hlavsa crafts a narrative that ushers us into the immediacy of that event and its aftermath. Somehow he manages to put language to the unnamable, to make us turn from our weeping so we may see what is behind that weeping, to consider how such events transform us.
Hlavsa writes in the tradition of Anne Lamott, Bill Bryson, and Kathleen Norris, and readers who value books by these authors should hurry to get a copy of Walking Distance.
