Geography of Home has been hailed as an appealing, insightful collection of musings on the architecture, psychology, and history of house and home in America" (Kirkus). Now available in paperback, Geography of Home reminds us that the house is home to many things. Far more than four walls and a roof, it contains our private and public lives, our families, our memories and aspirations, and reflects our attitudes toward society, culture, the environment, and our neighbors.In a literary tour of the spaces of our homes, noted design essayist Akiko Busch reflects on how we define such elusive qualities as privacy, security, and comfort. Part social history, part architectural history, part personal anecdote, this rich and delightful book uncovers the hidden meanings of the place we call home."
Akiko Busch is a contributing editor at Metropolis.

Editorial Reviews

On the hardcover edition: "Elegant and funny, philosophical and thoroughly absorbing. Busch coaxes meaning and intrigue out of the front door; laundry room, and other humble elements of a house. She makes us realize afresh the fascinating and complex lessons contained in a home."
