I heard of this book from the radio, an interesting concept – considering the idea of home, its importance, its value, and its constancy in our lives. What fascinates me is the interweaving of sources in this book – popular and academic, philosophical and social commentary, leading us chapter by chapter to consider our idea of home in new ways. Homes can be a source of comfort, of belonging, familiarity, laughter and ease but they can also harbour secrets, abuse, and violence. Angela tells stories of people embracing their own concept of home, reflecting their relationships needs, and changing needs over the course of our lifetime. Whilst published three years ago, this book reminds me of the importance of home, in a world where people are fleeing their own countries and homes, the book is thought-provoking and prompts you to cherish what you have a little bit more.
