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 other 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 write and collect her own work. The result is a lyrical and piercingly insightful collection of essays and her own brand of essay-meets-prose poetry about identity and culture. Inspired by Maggie Nelson's Bluets, Lydia Davis's short prose, and Vivian Gornick's exploration of interior life, Chew-Bose captures the inner restlessness that keeps her always on the brink of creative expression. 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.… (més)

Brisk read with keen observations and insights in this essay collection. Even though I read the intended audience as millenials, the well juxtaposed cultural references are familiar. ( )

I wanted to like this but I couldn't stand it. To me it read like a commencement speech. It'd be one thing if it were merely corny, but it feels worse than that, it feels like advertising copy. Like if every one of these paragraphs ended with "Folger's" or "Nabisco" I might like it better.

I feel bad because I have been such a hater lately, and maybe this book is bearing the brunt of things I don't like. But really.... where are the nasty bitches?? ( )

The pieces on cinema are the best. Chew-Bose pinpoints why movies are magic, particularly in the Summer! Durga’s insights on how culture and ethnicity are still subtly undermined even between well-meaning friends are familiar to me. Read the book if you like contemplating on art or literature, or you like New York City life. ( )

I LOVED this essay collection. Durga Chew-Bose writes like you think; starting with one idea then flowing seamlessly into something (or several things) that, at first, seem unrelated but then all come together at the end. I found myself underlining several sentences and passages as I read. Whether she's deconstructing an emoji, recalling a childhood fishing trip, or describing herself and a girl who doesn't exist, Chew-Bose, so eloquently and with beautiful clarity, puts into words what I (and I'm sure many other women my age) have been thinking and feeling.
