Most of what follows is true, even the fiction. It contains cigarette smoking, drinking, occasional suicidal thoughts, and, yes, sex, because I know you like that sort of thing. It's been a strange life. It's been my life.

Features stories, poems, and essays on relationships, romance, writing, and taking oneself far too seriously. Plus some humor. You may laugh, you may cry

I really enjoyed Scott Nicholson's These Things Happened. This is a collection of essays, short stories and poems about life. I loved the humor of Postcards From A Book Tour. I could imagine writing these home to my mom. Others may make you feel sadness or anger. And doesn't a good book do that...make you feel? A good book to have handy for coffee shop or lunchtime reading.

This collection of short stories probes the mind and makes you wander along in different snippets throughout a poor man's life. There is always alot of sorrow when you stop to look back.

Of all the books I've read by Scott Nicholson this one let me down a bit. Some of the stories were good, others not so much. I'm not a huge fan of story stories and that may have played a role in my overall reception of the book. Just OK.

These Things Happened was an interesting collection of short stories,poems and essays. Some were sad, creepy and some just strange. But I never said I didn't like weird stories so naturally I enjoyed this!
It was good...t did not entirely captivate me, I do like his writing style and will try more of his novels though,
