Falling : A Daughter, a Father, and a Journey Back (Reprint) (Paperback) (Elisha Cooper)
About this item
Elisha Cooper spends his mornings creating children's books and his afternoons playing with his two daughters. But when he discovers a lump in five-year-old Zoë's midsection as she sits on his lap at a Chicago Cubs game, everything changes. Surgery, sleepless nights, months of treatment, a drumbeat of worry. Even as the family moves to New York and Zoë starts kindergarten, they must navigate a new normal: school and soccer and hot chocolate at the local café, interrupted by visits to the hospital. Elisha and his wife help their daughters maintain a sense of stability and joy in their family life. And he tries to understand this new world—how it changes art and language and laughter—as he holds on to the protective love he feels for his child. With the observant eye of an artist and a remarkable sense of humor, Cooper captures this emotional journey back to health.
