Über diesen Titel


In Home, eighteen of our finest writers evoke different rooms--from their pasts, their present, or simply their imaginations--in order to investigate the ways in which homes contain our lives. The results are touching, provocative, and sometimes hilarious. And since a portion of the editors' proceeds will go to organizations that help the homeless, Home is really where the heart is. Contributors include: Lynda Barry, Richard Bausch, Tony Earley, James Finn Garner, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Allan Gurganus, Colin Harrison, Kathryn Harrison, Gish Jen, Karen Karbo, Alex Kotlowitz, Clint McCown, Susan Power, Esmeralda Santiago, Mona Simpson, Jane Smiley, Sallie Tisdale, and Bailey White.
"Unforgettable...These pages are filled with the kind of details that etch a childhood place into the deep recesses of memory, that distinguish the sensual life of one family from another."--Los Angeles Times Book Review

From School Library Journal:

YA?In this engaging collection of stories and essays, 18 contemporary American writers remember distinctive rooms from their pasts. Richard Bausch recalls a grandmother's birthday party on the wonderful porch of an old Victorian house in Washington, D.C. and turns this reverie into reflections on life and death. Vivid details fill these mini-memoirs. Esmeralda Santiago writes about poverty and terrors found in her closets in the barrio. Black-and-white television in the 1950s living room became for Henry Louis Gates, Jr., the arena for the drama of race. Jane Smiley sought solitude and refuge in bathrooms. Lynda Barry's "The Teenage Bedroom" will make a terrific booktalk. These evocative pieces can inspire students of creative writing and teachers of the essay and short story. They could be an antidote for classes studying the plight of the homeless, and will be a great pleasure to YAs living in and shaped by homespace. Most of the selections have not been previously published. Tiny, charming illustrations appear at the beginning of each chapter of this lovely book.?Betta Hedlund, Mary Riley Styles Public Library, Falls Church, VA
