This book is an invitation to reflect on self and home, identity and belonging.
We all need space to be ourselves, but we need it to be the kind of space that we can personalise - space that says something about who we are.
The concept of 'home' reflects one of the deepest and most universal of human experiences. It manifests in everything from religion to nationalism, and from buildings and decor to nostalgia for the place of our birth.
This book takes you on a journey, from the temples of the ancient Near East, through the changes in our way of seeing the universe, to our day-to-day experience of thinking about buying a new house or the contacts that make us feel at home when we pick up our phone.
It asks the most fundamental of all questions: Where do you really belong?
