Reviews

"Material culture, laid bare in this way, is surprisingly intimate--and whets a persons appetite to see the world." --The Atlantic

"Striking." --San Francisco Chronicle

"This remarkable book vividly presents its own cross section of families today, with the energy and intimacy of a work of art for our times . . . This is a record of striking value. No time traveler could bring back a more valuable resource." --Scientific America
