"Dan Josefson is a writer of astounding promise and That's Not a
Feeling is a bold, funny, mordant, and deeply intelligent debut." --David Foster Wallace
"Every one of Bissell's pieces is like some great, transfixing
documentary you stumble on while channel-surfing late at
night--something you feel, in that moment, a kind of gratitude toward
for redeeming your sleeplessness. Considered alongside his fiction, this
new collection makes clear that Tom Bissell is one of our most
interesting and ambitious writers." --John Jeremiah Sullivan, author of Pulphead
