This Is Between Us by Kevin Sampsell
This Is Between Us

hollylaycock, November 4, 2013

I read Kevin Sampsell’s This Is Between Us in two days, and I’m surprised it took me that long, honestly. Kevin Sampsell’s writing kept me up all night, and I eventually fell asleep with the book in my hand, not wanting to close it. Told in a series of vignettes, This is Between Us chronicles the relationship of a man and woman over five years, from their first days together to their times apart, and back again. Sampsell captures all the ins and outs of this relationship in a way that feels both uniquely special to the characters, as well as universally familiar to the reader. Reading this book was like a love affair in and of itself, but also felt like a retrospective of past relationships. Even though the characters in the book are older than myself and at different stages in life (divorced, with kids), their daily interactions are comparable to my own (23 year old college graduate). It is a book that I recommend to everyone�"my girlfriends, my parents, my younger brother. Just lovely!
