With works published in several publications--including The Gettysburg Review and TriQuarterly--Peggy Shinner explores the complex desires, fears, confusions, and mysteries that shape our bodily perceptions with the engaging, witty, and insightful essay collection, You Feel So Mortal: Essays on the Body. An honest and unflinching look at everything from feet to hair, to death and the soul, this essay collection offers a probing view of our preoccupation with the body that is both idiosyncratic and universal, leaving us with the deep satisfaction of our shared humanity.
