Rate this:
A collection of 20 essays written by some of the most notable women prose writers around today, thematically centered on the idea of home. Maxine Hong Kingston describes her first mortgaged home, Erica Jong astutely points out that home is "where your books are," lucille clifton, more poetically, claims home as "where the memory is," and in that place each of these talented writers evokes a landscape of children, homelessness, racism, joy, safety, and the familiar voices of both daughters and mothers.
