Summary, etc.: Bryson (A Short History of Nearly Everything) takes readers on a tour of his house, a rural English parsonage, showing how each room has figured in the evolution of private life. Surprised by how little he knew of the things that made his home life so comfortable, author Bill Bryson decided to study each room in his house and discover how they came to be. Here, with trademark humor and wit, Bryson chronicles the history of domesticity.
