More About Too Much and Not the Mood by Durga Chew-Bose
 
 
 
Overview

Named a best book of 2017 by NPR, The Guardian, Slate, NYLON and The Globe and Mail (Canada)

From Durga Chew-Bose, "one of our most gifted, insightful essayists and critics" (Nylon), comes "a warmly considered meld of criticism and memoir" (New Yorker), a lyrical and piercingly insightful debut collection of essays about identity and culture.

Too Much and Not the Mood is a beautiful and surprising exploration of what it means to be a first-generation, creative young woman working today. On April 11, 1931, Virginia Woolf ended her entry in A Writer's Diary with the words "too much and not the mood" to describe her frustration with placating her readers, what she described as the "cramming in and the cutting out." She wondered if she had anything at all that was truly worth saying.

The attitude of that sentiment inspired Durga Chew-Bose to gather own writing in this lyrical collection of poetic essays that examine personhood and artistic growth. Drawing inspiration from a diverse group of incisive and inquiring female authors, Chew-Bose captures the inner restlessness that keeps her always on the brink of creative expression.
