Abstract:

Offering bright glimpses into a richly lived life, Heating & Cooling combines the compression of poetry with the truth-telling of nonfiction in one heartfelt, celebratory book. From childhood recollections to quirky cultural observations, some wistful, some wry, they 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. This genre-defying book shapes a life from moments and awakens us to these moments as they appear in the margins of our lives.
