Inhaltsangabe: ??don?t be fooled ? this isn?t just a love letter written for those lost days of summer filled with pot smoke and half pipes ? ?better if you don?t come back? is also about the human condition; from the sublime to the ridiculous. If it isn?t the first real skateboarding novel out there, it certainly is the first existentialist skateboarding novel.?
---Colm Hogan, Digitized Graffiti
?There is pleasure to be found comparing ?better if you don?t come back? with ?Waiting for Godot?, but anyone can enjoy the 142-page novel as a study of friendship and skating without having read Beckett?s play. [?] The boys inhabit multiple generations of makeshift family structures and DeMough?s writing turns effectively experimental as he mingles times and spaces to show how family histories lead to scenes that contain painful, but comprehensible actions.?
---Galen Dekemper, Quartersnacks
?The expert use of dialogue makes the book read quickly and the literary device where Samuel Beckett is referenced is brilliant. It almost reads as a play or screenplay. If you?re into skating, I think you?ll enjoy this.?
--Steve Hart, RAZORCAKE
?DeMough has been able to solidify and give voice to an ethos that most skaters have identified, but few have tried articulating.?
?Making the leap from skating all day to facing life's hard lessons, ?better if you don't come back? holds a nice balance between serious situations while also dropping laugh-out-loud passages. Amidst the craziness, you'll likely find the story line bares more reality than you may expect or want to admit.?
