Naomi Guttman

A review by Professor of Literature and Creative Writing Naomi Guttman was recently published on Canadian Writers Abroad, a website that promotes, shares, and records the work of Canadian writers who are working or have worked outside of Canada.

In her analysis of Too Much and Not the Mood, a book of creative non-fiction essays by Durga Chew-Bose, Guttman said “A book of essays on the details of a single life risks making too much of a thing, making judgments and presenting opinions for the sake of sounding authoritative. Mostly, however, Chew-Bose straddles that line admirably; mostly she is charming in her desire to be liked, to be understood, and to understand herself.”

Guttman also read from her work on Feb. 15 as a guest of the Ashley Hall Spring Writers Series. Ashley Hall is an independent private girls’ school in Charleston, S.C.
