Like essays? Read Once I Was Cool by Megan Stielstra: My Chicago Tribune Review

Friday, May 23, 2014

I love it when I love the books the Chicago Tribune sends me to read.

Recently I had the pleasure of a Tribune-initiated introduction to Megan Stielstra, by way of her new essay collection, Once I Was Cool.

My review, which runs in this weekend's Printers Row, begins like this, below....
The world is a mess. Noisy. Prickly. Guilty. Fidgety. Hot. A case of psoriasis, holes in the ozone layer, rivers running this way and that. Who has time to make room for 29 new personal essays by Megan Stielstra, a Chicagoan whose life — as a storyteller, teacher, writer, wife, mother — is kind of messy too.
and can be read in its entirety here.
