"Joe Wilkins has a big, true, highway-running American voice. When you see a new book of his, you should celebrate. Just buy it, put down the window, and let the music blow back your hair. It's nothing but alive." – Luis Alberto Urrea
My story, “Boys, Ten In All,” is featured in the August issue of The Sun. Pleased to see my work in such a fine venue.
Joe, you created a story of unexpected connections by ironically using ten “disconnected” souls. That Ten Boys in All takes place at, in, and around a lake adds to the impact I experienced—I read it in Sun Magazine while basking in the sun on Lake Hayden. Brilliant and heart rending.
Your workshop at Get Lit, Spokane 2013, stays with me; you accomplished a great deal in a short amount of time with your attendees, a diverse group of published, or would-be, or wanna-be poets.
I read your story in the Sun. Fascinating way to structure a story. I really liked it.
This is wonderful, Joe!
I am so moved by your story. Sensitive and raw, beautifully written. Thank you.
