Tears to Wine is a very strange short story.
Told by a young male protagonist, the story unfolds as if he is telling us his memory of the events. It provides a lot of information, but doesn't show the reader very much outside of what is written on the page.
The whole story is rather sad, with some lovely prose speckled throughout.
I didn't love it or hate it, but I also wasn't very drawn to it, which is why this gets only two stars from me.
