R. Tim Morris’ Rating: 6/10
Of the twelve short stories contained within these pages, I can say that I really only enjoyed five of them. And the five favorites fell within the first six stories, so as you can imagine it was a pretty slow go through the last half of the book. If I was only rating the first half, I’d be hard-pressed not to give What’s Important Is Feeling an 8/10. Things I Had and We Close Our Eyes were probably my two favorites.
The stories that I did enjoy contained so much raw heartbreak, angst and coming-of-age. I would not hesitate to read a full-length novel by Adam Wilson as his voice is unique in both its humor and tragedy.
