A 5 star read
My first and most important question after reading Human Tenderloin is, if Craig Wallwork is a professional boxer, because he has punched me straight in the gut so many times with his masterfully crafted collection of stories that I might be down for the count.
I don’t know how he did it, but I truly enjoyed every single tale within this book. There was not a single one that I even slightly disliked.
If a producer would get on board with turning his stories into an anthology TV show, I would be its biggest fan. Honestly, this might have been the oddest, creepiest and best short story collection I’ve ever read.
There is so much raw human emotion within these pages and the biggest one of them is grief. I’m not even ashamed to say that I teared up a few times.
I can’t name a personal favorite, because they are all my favorites. I’m gonna say it right now: If Human Tenderloin was the last book on earth, I would gladly take a slice of it.
Craig, thank you so much for letting me read it early
