Staff Reviews

Beth Ann Fennelly’s snippets are full and juicy, like strawberries in the summer. Even the ones that are sad, or filled with longing, or just a few sentences, leave us wanting more, and unlike the strawberries, they are easily returned to for savoring. Highly enjoyable, perfect for a late summer morning. 

— Tildy


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.
