“This is a book of enormous intelligence, and even more heart.” – Jim Shepard

“If That’s Not a Feeling were a fifth novel, it would be a triumph. As a first novel, it’s an astonishment. Dan Josefson sails along the scary edge of perfection in this book, and does so with style, empathy, compassion, humor, and wisdom.” – Tom Bissell

“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

“This is a powerful, haunting look at the alternate universe of an unusual therapeutic community.” – Library Journal (Starred Review)

“The prose is matter-of-fact, even placid, and studded with perfectly phrased gems, a cool surface to a work that is rich in feeling. A wonderful and noteworthy debut.” – Booklist (Starred Review)
