Overview

Home is where House Beautiful’s heart is, and this second engaging collection of the magazine’s “Thoughts of Home” column pays tribute to that special place. These first person essays capture the nostalgia for Grandmother’s farmhouse, the giddy pleasures of that first apartment, the recovery from the loss of a beloved abode. Author Edna O’Brien leads us through her adored childhood home in County Clare. Christopher Buckley’s “Foggy Bottom Blues” amusingly recounts his mishap-ridden relocation to Washington, D.C. From Patrick Dunne’s reminiscences of junkyard picking in New Orleans to Sally Ryder Brady’s story of watching her family’s Vermont house bulldozed to the ground, these essays remind us that not only is there no place like home, but that no two are alike.
