House Beautiful If These Walls Could Talk: Thoughts of Home (House Beautiful)

House Beautiful If These Walls Could Talk: Thoughts of Home (House Beautiful) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At times humorous, at times touching, these deeply personal essays by such acclaimed authors as Edna O’Brien, Christopher Buckley, Michael Pye, A.M. Holmes, and Stacy Shiff, capture all the love and magic of home. Taken from House Beautiful’s popular “Thoughts of Home” column.

Home is where House Beautiful’s heart is, and this second engaging collection of the magazine’s “Thoughts of Home” column pays tribute to that very special place. These first person essays capture the nostalgia for Grandmother’s farmhouse, the giddy pleasures of that first apartment, the recovery from the loss of a beloved abode. Author Edna O’Brien leads us through her adored childhood home in County Clare, a place she still dreams about every night. Christopher Buckley’s “Foggy Bottom Blues” is an amusing account of his mishap-ridden relocation to Washington, D.C. Other contributors include the novelist A.M. Homes, the Pulitzer Prize winning biographer Stacy Schiff, and the travel writer Hope Cooke. From Patrick Dunne’s reminiscences of junkyard picking in New Orleans to Sally Ryder Brady’s story of watching her family’s Vermont house bulldozed to the ground, each of these essays reminds us that not only is there no place like home, but that no two are alike.
