“Clap your hands, rattle your jewelry, and twist and shout for Erin Hosier’s Don’t Let Me Down. If ‘true love shares a soundtrack,’ The Beatles gave an inspired daughter her only chance to connect with a complicated, troubled father. Hosier’s story is crammed with joy, heartbreak, transformation, and, at last, acceptance. Fierce, catchy, hilarious – like your favorite ?vinyl punk ’45 – this bird can sing. A glorious memoir.”— Brando Skyhorse, author of Take This Man
"Don’t Let Me Down is a beautifully written, honest and often funny account of what it is to grow up as a woman. Erin Hosier not only nails the complicated father-daughter dynamic that inevitably cross-fades into gnarly relationships with men, but she does so artfully and with uncanny insight, delivering a stunningly tender tribute to the power of faith, love and, yes, the Beatles."— Nancy Balbirer, author of A Marriage in Dog Years
“Erin’s humorous, insightful memoir is wildly quotable. Like Ben Franklin quotable. You’ll be passing off her profound little bon-mots to your friends like you wrote them.”–– Mishna Wolff, author of I'm Down
"In Erin Hosier's Don't Let Me Down, she shows us the slow and often imperceptible ways that a family becomes fractured, one secret at a time, until all is broken. Her memoir attempts to make that brokenness whole, an homage to her father, a testament to her brothers, to faith, and ultimately, to love. All of this is set within the structure of old Beatles tunes, one of the few shared pleasures that her family engaged in together. I read it in one sitting, the words playing like an LP in my brain."–– Tanya Marquardt, author of Stray: Memoir of a Runaway
“[An] unsettling yet witty coming-of-age story…with chapter headings named after Beatles songs, this incisive memoir effectively transports readers to the ‘70s while exploring the weighty complexities of father-daughter love.”— Publishers Weekly
“With a soundtrack provided by the Beatles, [Erin] Hosier's memoir considers her Ohio youth and New York City coming-of-age… Hosier writes most ecstatically about music and keeps readers turning pages with suspenseful foreshadowing and subtle cliff-hangers.”— Booklist
"Hosier delivers a memoir that is less about chasing an identity and more about having one cast upon her and coming to terms with it. A vividly rhythmic chronicle of reconciliation couched with a 1960s rock-'n'-roll soundtrack."— Kirkus Reviews
