In a literary tour of the spaces of our homes, Geography of Home reflects on how we define such elusive qualities as privacy, security, and comfort. Part social history, part architectural history, part personal anecdote, this book uncovers the hidden meanings of the place we call home. These writings touch on our culture's fundamental issues: the notion of family, the aging of the population, working at home, and respect for the environment. Together, these essays help us understand not only what home means for each of us, but how our idea of home shapes our place in the world.Traulsen refrigerators, with double doors in stainless steel or glass, oversize mixers and blenders, chrome backsplashes, and rubber hardware all emphasize a heavy-duty industrial aesthetic that has come into the house through the kitchen.
