The boarding school, which only allows its students to express seven different emotions, pokes fun at larger society

Library Journal and Booklist gave Josefson's novel starred reviews, and the late author David Foster Wallace said "That's Not a Feeling" was a “funny, mordant, and deeply intelligent debut.”

Dan Josefson is a Master of Fine Arts graduate from UNLV’s Black Mountain Institute, who recently delivered the latest in a series of alumni readings.
