One of the New York Times Book Review's 10 Best Books of the Year
 
From her charismatic father, Danielle Trussoni learned how to rock and roll, outrun the police, and never shy away from a fight. Spending hour upon hour trailing him around the bars and honky-tonks of La Crosse, Wisconsin, young Danielle grew up fascinated by stories of her dad's adventures as a tunnel rat in Vietnam, where he'd risked his life crawling head first into narrow passageways to search for American POWs.
 
A vivid and poignant portrait of a daughter's relationship with her father, this funny, heartbreaking, and beautifully written memoir ""makes plain that the horror of war doesn't end in the trenches"" (Vanity Fair).

""The affection, respect, and humor [Danielle Trussoni] brings to the task of revealing this complicated individual [her father] is testimony both to her creative abilities and to the generosity of her spirit.""--The New York Times Book Review
 
""Vivid and engrossing . . . a wonderfully complex and penetrating book. This is an accomplished debut from a writer with many talents.""--Chicago Tribune
 
""A richly textured history and timely reminder that a war's victims aren't limited to those in uniform nor demarcated by geography.""--Anthony Swofford, author of Jarhead
 
""A heartbreaking story of missed connections . . . this excellent memoir is much more than the sum of its parts.""--People (four stars)
 
""Powerful . . . Her book is a captivating triumph.""--The Capital Times (Wisconsin)
 
""In the hard-hitting and affectionate Falling Through the Earth,  Danielle Trussoni, whose father was never able to shed his memories of Vietnam, traces how trauma is passed from generation to generation.""--Vogue
 
""A rich vein of material, and [Trussoni's] handling of it is deft . . . A moving memoir that flows like the best fiction but that has the punch of real life.""--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
 
""Trussoni's memories of a hard-knocks childhood are vivid and spiky, and she relays her father's war stories with convincing bravado.""--Boston Sunday Globe
