What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Will Dowd's soulful, precise essays on weather and related subjects–literature, New England, human frailty, joy–are a string of expertly cut and polished gems.Bittersweetly funny and wise, deeply felt without ever lapsing into sentimentality, they're full of surprises and phrases so well turned that you'll want to read them aloud to somebody."
—Carlo Rotella, Playing in Time: Essays, Profiles, and Other True Stories

Dowd is an author to watch out for. I'm so grateful that I found this book. It's unique and fun; there are certain passages that I re-read multiple times, in awe of how clever the ideas are and how well-crafted the sentences are. It's the kind of thing you want to read aloud to your friend to share the experience with them. His writing exudes intelligence and creativity that is on par with the best and brightest of current literary stars, but his style and humor and whimsy are easily accessible by all readers - and it is that balance that makes this book truly impressive.

An incredible read; so thoughtfully written! One of the only instances where I have consistently laughed about the weather in New England. I absolutely love this book!
