In May of last year, Dave Hill Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, Dave Hill’s memoir and humorous essay collection, was published in hardcover by Penguin Random House.
I wrote a positive review on this blogsite, and Dave (with whom I’m acquainted only on social media, not in person) went on the recommended author tour.
One year later, there’s no paperback edition and no date for an upcoming paperback release. Although everything I hear about the book is positive, it looks as if word isn’t reaching enough readers.
If you appreciate serious/humorous/perceptive/metaphorical/touching life analysis, you can’t miss Dave Hill Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. If you do miss it, you have only yourself to blame if your own life fails to move forward. Do you really think you can get anywhere in this world without Dave’s example? Don’t be arrogant.
No, Dave’s masterwork isn’t a self-help B.S. piece. The author doesn’t advise. We can learn, though, and the passages that don’t educate are still vital to read. If that makes no sense to you, it’s just one more reason to read the book.*
Read Dave’s book, dammit! It’s available in hardcover (which you can buy either from your local brick-and-mortar bookseller or from Amazon) and as a Kindle e-book. I’m fed up with people voting for assholes because they haven’t enlightened themselves.
*Hey, a good laugh is important, too.
