A new book that features my house (and me) has just been released by the Indiana University Press. It's called A Home Of Her Own, and features the stories, and the houses, of women who have formed a deep and abiding bond with their homes. It was written by my friend Nancy Hiller, with wonderful photographs by Kendall Reeves. Nancy is a wonderful writer- she made my life story sound much better than my actual life! And I found the stories of the other women fascinating, and occasionally heart-wrenching. Nancy has a piece up at The Huffington Post about the book:

Nancy has her own blog at  http://ahomeofherown.wordpress.com/

Check out the comments on the Huffington Post entry if you are amused by cluelessness.

Jane, thanks so much for mentioning our book! I'm so glad you approve of it. I have just one quibble with your post: Your life is in fact far MORE fascinating than the account in A Home of Her Own! You are something of a national treasure.

Don't confuse the term "budget" with "poor-quality." Expired food products, rotting produce or old meats are not a bargain. Aim to discover parts of the city where you can obtain quality ingredients at a reasonable price.
