Editorial Reviews

Review

The four brilliant chapbooks that make up A Peculiar Feeling of Restlessness are disarmingly, unabashedly intimate collections by women who know how to tell a story and aren't afraid to drag the unspoken out into the light of day. --Pia Z. Ehrhardt, in her introduction

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

This publisher, Rose Metal Press mailed this book to me free via Lit Drift's Free Book Friday. What an exceptional gift. I seldom read short-shorts and as I slowly read each story by the four authors my brain was all warm and fuzzy and my body came to life with sparkling fire-work events.

Claudia Smith's "World of Men," Kathy Fish's "Foreign Film," Amy L. Clark's "Wanting," Elizabeth Ellen's "Blood," are all excellent shorts. I'd stretch my imagination to say that all the shorts are excellent eclipses of life. Get this book, read it and keep it for many more re-reads.

I will take my copy to dinner and show it to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. I know George Clooney will love reading this book so I'll take it with me when I shoot baskets with him next week.

What a bargain, four amazing authors in one. Warning though - don't read this book too quickly, take your time, or soon it will be over and you'll be saying, what? over already?

I didn't find the stories that inspiring, unfortunately. I couldn't relate to the writers.

I found most of these stories unsatisfying. Perhaps that means means I don't grasp the very-short genre, but only a handful were okay. Most of them seemed self-aware and labored.
