What you get is a 60 - 90 minute read of eight short stories with a lot of variety in style and genre along with a half-dozen or so poems. This is combined with some background information giving you the feeling the author has permitted you to borrow their precious notebook of work over the years and placed sticky notes in to introduce each piece. There is even an encouraging note to aspiring writers ending the collection.
As much as this sounds like it might be a great gift for a young writer in your life the mature content makes it solidly age 16 and up and even then preview it for appropriateness if in doubt. Despite this caution I do heartily recommend this book for adults. It is okay to skip a story if it is not to your taste but even then you might find yourself drawn in by the storytelling. In this anthology there are several pieces with content I would not have sought out but I still found them all worthwhile reads due to Shannon Barber's style. There is a sequel Wayward Words: A Collection of Homeless Words. Vol. 2. The Flash Edition and I will be getting that book in the future.
