Heating & Cooling by Beth Anne Fennelly

Heating & Cooling  by Beth Anne Fennelly

"This Slim, Strange and utterly delightful little book has made me want to write my own memoir someday.  Fennelly's collection of memories, observations and thoughts spans her entire life and not only feels incredibly personal, but is written with the  most beautiful language and the perfect amount of humor... you can tell that Fennelly is, first and foremost, a poet.  This is the kind of book that will have you considering the moments that resonate in your own life and that you'll return to again and again."  - Recommended by Erika

The 52 micro-memoirs in genre-defying Heating & Cooling offer bright glimpses into a richly lived life, combining the compression of poetry with the truth-telling of nonfiction into one heartfelt, celebratory book. Ranging from childhood recollections to quirky cultural observations, these micro-memoirs build on one another to arrive at a portrait of Beth Ann Fennelly as a wife, mother, writer, and deeply original observer of life's challenges and joys. Some pieces are wistful, some wry, and many reveal the humor buried in our everyday interactions. Heating & Cooling: 52 Micro-Memoirs shapes a life from unexpectedly illuminating moments, and awakens us to these moments as they appear in the margins of our lives.
