Review of Sit With Me

Everything about this piece is excellent. The narrator's voice, what he says, the balance his and his father's voices are given throughout the piece. This is a piece about a child's experience with a depressed parent. about depression. It also gives a portrait of depression that is unexpectedly profound, given how little the father speaks. But when he speaks, and perhaps because he is speaking to his son, not to an outsider, you hear the fragility and the struggle in his voice. I highly recommend this piece.
