“You may never look at yourself or the place you live in the same way”
Excerpted from Amos Lassen’s Review of House Hold
“Peters reflects on the romance of pastoral retreat, the hazards of nostalgia, America’s history of expansion and land ownership, and the conflicted desires to put down roots and to hit the road. Throughout House Hold, she asks us how places make us who we are. Do we need to have a place to call home if we want to live an authentic life and if we want to belong somewhere?
…I do not remember being so enrapt in a book before…. You may never look at yourself or the place you live in the same way.”
