About the Author
- 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.”
“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.”
“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.”

I have read this collection of micro-memoirs several times and each time I found her to be joyous in her writing. She is in love with words. She has the skill to script a memorable experience that engages me. What a great ride! That’s a good thing, otherwise, she may as well be knitting or bartending.
"In every book my husband’s written, a character named Colin suffers a horrible death. This is because my boyfriend before I met my husband was named Colin. In addition to being named Colin, he was Scottish, and an architect. So you understand my husband’s feelings of inadequacy. My husband cannot build a tall building of many stories. He can only build *a* story, and then push Colin out of it."
