Peculiar Feeling of Restlessness

by and and and

Peculiar Feeling of Restlessness  Cover

 

Staff Pick

This impressive anthology collects four of the best under-the-radar female writers of this decade. Each one presents a section of tight, angular, brave, funny, and innovative flash fictions. Clark writes explosive, playful brain candy. Ellen's work is tough with a kinky aftertaste. Fish delivers heartbreaking tenderness and turmoil. Smith writes deeply about family, with a tangible lust for life and memories. A Peculiar Feeling of Restlessness is an expertly assembled collection of wonders.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The four chapbooks collected in A Peculiar Feeling of Restlessness, three of them finalists and one of them the winner of the Rose Metal Press first annual short short chapbook contest, all revel in the succinctness of their form, the underlying tension anchored beneath each story of 1,000 words or less. These stories are peculiar; they resonate with restlessness. They are deft, they are gritty, and they are lyrical. Laughter, Applause, Laughter, Music, Applause by Kathy Fish, Wanting by Amy L. Clark, Sixteen Miles Outside of Phoenix by Elizabeth Ellen, and The Sky Is a Well by Claudia Smith (the reprint of her sold out chapboook) combine four multi-layered portrayals of beautiful uneasiness into a collection rich with wit, grace, and originality.

Review:

"The four brilliant chapbooks that make up A Peculiar Feeling of Restlessness are disarmingly, unabashedly intimate collections by women who know how to tell a story and aren't afraid to drag the unspoken out into the light of day." Pia Z. Ehrhardt
