IAN AYRIS GIVE A.T.W.C. A WONDERFUL REVIEW

*

ALL THE WILD CHILDREN is a biography – a departure from Stallings’ novels but not by as much as you might think. In fact, if you came into the world of Josh Stallings blind you’d be hard-pressed to separate his novels from this incredible memoir. 

Hypnotic. Heart-pumping. Incredible.

I'm over at Loitering With Intent, Droping a essay on the '70's

*

ALL THE WILD CHILDREN is full of pain-driven rage and mad folly. From the late 1950’s to the early 2000’s a lot of things happened, to us all. I’m claiming, planting my tattered flag on my corner of it. 1974. Tad Williams and I were teens who used badly faked British accents to get into bars and girl’s knickers.

All the Wild Children is the most brutally honest thing I’ve ever read. Few people are willing to lay themselves as bare as Stallings does in his memoir, and even fewer still are able to do so in a way that comes across as disarmingly genuine as Stallings does. He presents his mind blowing life story as neither boast nor pity party, and freely admits that the events and adventures he recounts are “at best the recollections of a man with a weak memory but a strong sense of what it felt like.”

Belly Up to the Bar with TOM PLUCK

*

GREAT INTERVIEW.... And no matter how you dress her a twelve year old is a child, as are thirteen and fourteen and fifteen and sixteen year old girls.  Men who are willing to trade these girl’s childhoods just to bust a nut should be shot, slow, I.R.A style.  One joint at a time, then left to bleed out alone in a dirt field....

Julia Madeleine  Reviewsw ALL TH WILD CHILDREN

*

There are rich passages that are poetic and deep and supurbly written in "All The Wild Children", especially in reference to his son Dylan. The timeline jumps between the various stages, and ages, in his life are done with ease and consistency, making it powerfully stylish and a pleasure to read.

Doing Karma Time - CriMemoir: Josh Stallings

*

Is criminality genetic?  My old man was busted for armed robbery.  My grandfather sold bootleg booze.  My father is an artist.  My Grandfather was a cop.  I am a writer and movie editor.  My son is a cook and a musician.  And we are none of those things.  Those, the crimes included, are things we did, not who we are.  What we have done and what has been done to us is just some shit that happened.  Charlie Huston and I were in a dive bar last week, he was giving me props for All The Wild Children.  “It’s fucking brilliant, great, so the real question is…”  I held my breath, ready, “The real question is, what the fuck are you writing now?”
