Review

Heating and Cooling contains essays that are sometimes as short as 10 words . . . but add up to a surprisingly maximalist portrait of a life.”
- New York Times Book Review

“The micro-memoirs showcase a range of emotions that belies their brevity―taken from another standpoint, their brevity is what gives them power.”
- Wall Street Journal

“Beth Ann Fennelly’s genre-defying collection is so engaging and readable that you won’t even notice how much you’re learning about confronting the hardest challenge we all share: being human. Wise, irreverent, funny. . . . Everyone should read this book.”
- Atlanta Journal Constitution

“Consistently entertaining. . . poised, eloquent, and full of moments of tenderness.”
- Electric Literature

“Varying in length from a single sentence to several pages, the essays in [Heating and Cooling] are told with wry self-awareness and compassion.”
- Poets & Writers

“This collection will invite you into the delicate balance between the challenging, sometimes squalid, human condition and the beauty and sadness of the transcendent.”
- The Rumpus

“Fennelly packs a lot into each short piece, with some lighter in subject matter and others with a sudden punch-in-the-gut feel, weighted with existential exploration. . . . Potent despite their brevity.”
- Library Journal, starred

“[Heating and Cooling] offer[s] insight into . . . the overall human condition. . . . A sleek, delightful collection.”
- Kirkus

“Fennelly recounts episodes, events, or earned truths that, given her poignant reflection and graceful, often-funny telling, are sure to stop readers in their tracks. . . . This deceptively slim, convention-defying collection delivers unerringly generous rewards.”
- Booklist

“Imagine the hundred things you enjoy doing most in the world. Reading Beth Ann Fennelly’s Heating & Cooling is more fun than 95 of them.”
- Richard Russo --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
