Editorial Reviews


"A fine, original work of social history . . . splendidly researched, lucidly structured, felicitously written, filled with entertaining and often hilarious details and a solid contribution to its field." -- Phillip Lopate, The New York Times Book Review

"Reading not only the documents of the period but also clothing, furniture, toys, flowers, ceremonial objects, and food, this imaginative historian finds in the details of daily life a wellspring of cultural creativity." -- Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett
