Labelled by Vulture as one of the most exciting debuts of 2017, and by Bustle as one of the most anticipated feminist releases of the year – alongside work by Rebecca Solnit and Roxane Gay – Durga Chew-Bose’s debut collection of self-referential essays Too Much and Not the Mood has established her as a member of the millennial intelligentsia. Taking its title from a Virginia Woolf diary entry, Chew-Bose’s lyrical collection offer insights into art, literature, pop-culture, and what it means to be a Bengali-Canadian. She speaks with Ella Yelich-O’Connor.
