Each of the writers in this collection evokes a different room - a room he or she lived in, lives in, or, in one case, hilariously invents. Houses are made of bricks and wood and concrete - homes are built with memories and dreams and imagination. These writers, in moods and voices ranging from the comic to the haunting, will awaken for each of us the memories, perhaps long buried, of an important place: home.
