Meghan Daum's website describes her as "equal parts reporter, storyteller, and satirist." All three talents beam brightly in this memoir about her lifelong quest to find and furnish the perfect house. Her search for the ideal living place takes her deep into Craigslist and far afield on open houses, but instinctively, she knows that the it will always remain ongoing: "I love this house, a 100-year-old bungalow on a small farm in southeastern Nebraska, the future houses are what I see when I close my eyes. They are fantasies that consume me, dwelling so real that I can actually spend hours solving hypothetical problems—What if the house couldn't sustain additional phone lines? What if the bed can't fit through the door?" Fortunately, we can rest comfortably reading this delightful house-hunt.
