Summary
Erin Hosier and her family belonged to a strict evangelical church in Bainbridge, Ohio, for the first fourteen years of her life. But Erin was a rebel of the eighties who dyed her hair with cherry Kool-Aid while loudly defending liberal causes. Behind closed doors, she and her family were "five mentally ill people at different stages of development, screaming and flailing hysterically like hyenas." At the heart of the family was her father, Jack, whom Erin remembers as "the first boy I ever knew, the first man I ever loved, and the first significant person in my life to die." But she and her family also knew his other side far too well--his lies and his quick-flame anger that they were careful not to provoke. But Erin never saw her dad angry when he was listening to the Beatles. Despite being seen as a sin in their church, rock n' roll became the bond that brought father and daughter together. It gave Erin the courage to ultimately stand up to her father and everybody else; the push to leave home and move to New York City; and the coping mechanism for all the pain along the way. Don't Let Me Down is the story of a young woman who tip-toed within the shadow of her father. It breaks open what women feel about their sexuality, self-worth, and the rites of passage they go through in adolescence. Above all, it's the story of growing up with one dysfunctional family and finding peace in another
