Summary
  • "An entirely original portrait of a young writer shutting out the din in order to find her own voice"--
  • "On April 11, 1931, Virginia Woolf ended her entry in A Writer's Diary with the words "too much and not the mood." She was describing how tired she was of correcting her own writing, of the "cramming in and the cutting out" to please readers, wondering if she had anything at all that was truly worth saying. The character of that sentiment, the attitude of it, inspired Durga Chew-Bose to collect her own unconventional work. The result is a lyrical and piercingly insightful cluster of essays-meets-prose poetry about identity and culture. Informed by Maggie Nelson's Bluets, Lydia Davis's short stories, and Vivian Gornick's exploration of interior life, Chew-Bose mines the inner restlessness that keeps her always on the brink of creative expression. Too Much and Not the Mood is a lush, surprising, and affecting examination of what it means to be a first-generation, creative young woman working today."--Page 4 of cover
