Durga Chew-Bose is a Montreal-born writer. Her work has appeared in publications including The Globe and Mail, The Hairpin, Lenny Letter and The Guardian. Her debut collection of essays, Too Much and Not the Mood, was inspired by a 1931 Virginia Woolf diary entry. It explores culture, writing, and identity and the result is a lyrical and piercingly insightful collection of essays written in her own brand of essay-meets-prose poetry. Durga is currently teaching a non-fiction writing workshop at Sarah Lawrence College in New York.
