9780253018175: This Is Only a Test (Break Away Books)
Críticas:

"This Is Only a Test exposes our fears real and fake, invented and imbedded of disasters. Through Hollars s own experiences, research, and rememberings, he examines how our fears are often unfounded or inflated, even created. BJ Hollars is in a field all of his own." Jill Talbot, author of The Way We Weren't: A Memoir"

Reseña del editor:

On April 27, 2011, just days after learning of their pregnancy, B. J. Hollars, his wife, and their future son endured the onslaught of an EF-4 tornado. There, while huddled in a bathtub in their Alabama home, mortality flashed before their eyes. With the last of his computer battery, Hollars began recounting the experience, and would continue to do so in the following years, writing his way out of one disaster only to find himself caught up in another. From tornadoes to drownings to nuclear catastrophes, he is forced to acknowledge the inexplicable, while attempting to overcome his greatest fear the impossibility of protecting his newborn son from the world s cruelties. Hollars creates a constellation of grief, tapping into the rarely acknowledged intersection between fatherhood and fear, sacrifice and safety, and the humbling effect of losing control of our lives."
