What People Say
Craig Wallwork has a strong and steady voice, well deserving your time and attention.Dan Fante, author of Chump Change
Craig Wallwork’s The Sound of Loneliness has a few things in common with the agonized work of Thomas Bernhard, where the pain of ailment sometimes crosses the threshold of pleasure, and the reader is revolted and riveted at the same time. I enjoyed my time in Wallwork’s pages.Kyle Minor, author of In the Devil’s Territory
