[EAN: 9780307270665], [PU: Knopf], Biography & Autobiography|Personal Memoirs, This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "Quickened pulse, night sweats, insomnia . . . all the depredations of a love affair gone wrong. Anyone over the age of 30 who lived, worked or breathed in any proximity to the real estate market in the last decade will immediately recognize the signs of house lust. But I spent years as the editor ofHouse & Garden,and I don't think I ever encountered a case like Meghan Daum's. . . .Life Would Be Perfect if I Lived in That Houseadroitly manages to be funny, charming and shocking in its brutal frankness about an obsession that threatens to upend sanity and bank accounts. Luckily, as wasnotthe case for so many caught in the national grip of cheap mortgages, Daum's is the story of a love too big to fail. . . . She is smart about what makes a house beautiful in the eye of the beholder. . . . There's a mania about moving that cleverly masks a dread even more profound than that of not being human, and that is the dread of not being married. . . . Daum promises she doesn't intend to write a book with the happily-ever-after banality that's beginning to get on my nerves. Is it becoming a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman in possession of a good house must be in search of a husband? It speaks volumes in Daum's favor, then, that when she does fall in love, this reader took as much pleasure in it as I hope she will someday, when she isn't preoccupied with the important things like bursting closets, crammed bookshelves, and the detritus of combining two households, two lives. Daum has a rare gift in her ability to keep readers laughing through her own tears. Among the many wonderful things about houses is that they are such handy metaphors for so many things: love or loss, renewal or collapse. . . . Daum revels in all of it. There are times you want to sob with her, as she bloodies her knuckles and throws out her back, wrenching her reluctant house closer to its best possible self. Daum's journey from the buying of a house to the making of a home is arduous. There are times when it all gets so scary you hold your breath before crossing the threshold with her. But her spirit is generous, her writing is buoyant, and her heart is open to all the ways in which a house holds the key to happiness. Perfection has nothing to do with it." -Dominique Browning,The New York Times Book Review(May 9, 2010) "For all the talk of tranches and credit-default swaps, the recent financial meltdown began with something far more primal: house lust and its accompanying dreams and delusions. . . . The fantasy of a life transformed is what makes the ads and features in interior magazines so enticing-no fashion or celebrity magazine glamorizes its subjects as thoroughly asArchitectural DigestorElle Decor-and what gives HGTV's low-budget shows their addictive appeal. The longing for the perfect life in the perfect environment can make real-estate listings and 'For Sale' signs as evocative as novels. . . . A stock-market bubble may create financial hardship, but a housing bust breaks hearts. Although Daum did buy a house in 2004 and watched its value rise and then fall, her self-deprecatingly funny memoir isn't a tale of real-estate speculation. Rather she uses her lifelong obsession with finding the ideal living space to probe domestic desire, a deeper restlessness than the search for quick profits. . . . Like a traditional comedy,Life Would Be Perfect If I Lived in That Houseends with a wedding and the promise of settled adulthood. Except that Ms. Daum and her husband barely fit into the tiny rundown place she eventually purchased . . . She hopes to move to some place bigger, some place truly their own. What else should we expect from a child enraptured by Laura Ingalls Wilder'sLittle Housestories, where every book starts or ends with a move? Moving is the America

ID: 456621

From the acclaimed author and columnist: a laugh-out-loud journey into the world of real estatethe true story of one woman's imperfect life lived among imperfect houses and her quest for the four perfect walls to call home. After an itinerant suburban childhood and countless moves as a grown-upfrom New York City to Lincoln, Nebraska; from the Midwest to the West Coast and backMeghan Daum was living in Los Angeles, single and in her mid-thirties, and devoting obscene amounts of time not to her writing career or her dating life but to the pursuit of property: scouring Craigslist, visiting open houses, fantasizing about finding the right place for the right price. Finally, near the height of the real estate bubble, she succumbed, depleting her life's savings to buy a 900-square-foot bungalow, with a garage that bore a close resemblance to the ruins of Pompeii and plumbing that dated back to the Coolidge administration. From her mother's decorating manias to her own hidden room dreams, Daum explores the perils and pleasures of believing that only a house can make you whole. With delicious wit and a keen eye for the absurd, she has given us a pitch-perfect, irresistible tale of playing a lifelong game of house. From the Hardcover edition.
