Home is a loaded word, a complex idea: it's a place that can be comforting, difficult, nourishing, war-torn, or political. In this breathtaking, thought-provoking collection, 30 women writers explore the theme in personal essays about neighbors, marriage, kids, sentimental objects, homelessness, domestic violence, solitude, immigration, gentrification, geography, and more. Contributors'including Amanda Petrusich, Naomi Jackson, Jane Wong, and Jennifer Finney Boylan'lend a diverse range of voices to this subject that remains at the core of our national conversations. What makes a home' What do equality, safety, and politics have to do with it' And why is it so important to us to feel like we belong' Engaging, insightful, and full of hope, This is the Place will make you laugh, cry, and think hard about home, wherever you may find it.
