“Woe becomes art in these mesmerizing stories. Here are characters who need groceries, drugs, gas in their cars, diapers for their babies. They’ve got trouble, and it’s more complicated than you think. Sure, it’s Godforsaken country; sure, they bring it on themselves. But Vic Sizemore takes you where these folks live. Down and out is a place he knows, and he’ll hold you in its thrall.” ~ Sandra Scofield, The Last Draft; Swim: Stories of the Sixties

I Love You I'm Leaving Stories by Vic Sizemore

  • “With brilliant insight and emotional daring, Sizemore delivers a collection of stories that sparkle with humanity. His attention to cadence and rhythm makes this an unstoppable read.” ~ Meg Tuite, Meet My Haze


    “The stories in Vic Sizemore’s collection, I Love You. I’m Leaving, are as dark and unpredictable as unlit mountain roads at three in the morning. Sizemore presents an unlikely cast of musicians, middle managers and meth-heads struggling to survive in the broken landscapes of post-millennial West Virginia, a tableaux of decaying towns where a rock concert can end a marriage and a speeding ticket can lead to murder. With mordant humor and stoic compassion, Sizemore unveils an array of characters wrestling with a world of bad breaks and bleak justice. These remarkable stories are illuminated by the last fading embers of the American Dream.” ~ Craig Fishbane, On the Proper Role of Desire
