Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Describing the chaotic, polyglot world we live in now, one that disconnects us from the past and from one another, Doty asks, "So where do I live? I don't have an answer, but I've realized there's something I like about not having an answer... Sometimes home is found in unexpected places." National Book Critics Circle award-winner Doty has gathered 17 writers to consider those unexpected places, among them Andrea Barrett, Carol Muske-Dukes, Mary Morris and Paul Lisicky. For Morris, a sometime travel writer, the answer is the subways beneath New York City's streets. Barbara Hurd writes of caves, of finding herself "squeezed into a cleft in 350-million-year-old limestone...sixty feet under the earth," where she experiences a moment of sudden, unexpected intimacy with another caver. Other equally surprising "homes" are gracefully described in this fine collection.

From Booklist

Ruminations about home evoke strong emotions, allowing poet and memoirist Mark Doty to assemble a provocative collection of 19 edgy essays that reflect 19 unique visions. Doty, who since boyhood has lived a nomadic life, kicks things off by musing over how much the "built landscape" of America has changed over the past 50 years, along with our notions of home and identity, and, sure enough, change is this involving anthology's prevailing theme. Honor Moore writes with lyrical candor about selling a much-loved house. Andrea Barrett offers an unnerving account of her recent move to Brooklyn and soul-wrenching experience of September 11. Derick Burleson tells the harrowing story of his Peace Corps sojourn in Rwanda and considers the desecration of home as one of genocide's myriad tragedies. Rafael Campo muses on the lost Cuba of his grandparents, and Reginald Shepherd shares his quest for "gay space." The overarching recognition that emerges from this compelling forum is that the one home these insightful writers, and their grateful readers, can count on is literature. Donna Seaman
