“An intriguing narrative, punctuated by musings on everything from quitting to the definition of design to her life as a writer and public speaker. In this inspirational book, readers who have completed or are contemplating remodeling will empathize with Simon’s frustration-induced fits of pique or the couple’s rush of gratitude for a lovely home.”—Publishers Weekly

“Simon poignantly documents the next phase of her life, in which the home becomes a metaphor for the soul… An unsentimental, poetic appraisal of life’s big questions.”—Kirkus
Praise for Rachel Simon
“Simon brings an anthropologist’s eye to her stories, describing characters, action, and emotion as if she were new to the weary world. By seeing anew what comes naturally to most of us—cognition, memory, hearing, speech—Simon illuminates her characters’ interior lives and finds new and forgotten meaning.”—Philadelphia Inquirer
