At Home: A Short History of Private LifeIn these pages, the beloved Bill Bryson gives us a fascinating history of the modern home, taking us on a room by room tour through his own house and using each room to explore the vast history of the domestic artifacts we take for granted As he takes us through the history of our modern comforts, Bryson demonstrates that whatever happens in the world eventually ends up in our home, in the paint, the pipes, the pillows, and every item of furniture Bryson has one of the liveliest, most inquisitive minds on the planet, and his sheer prose fluency makes At Homeone of the most entertaining books ever written about private life
