The Idea of Home
Overview In The Idea of Home, Curtis White imagines "a place in which humans can live." This utopia is definitely not San Lorenzo-a postwar, prefabricated suburb in California-where White grew up. From the vantage point of an unbalanced adulthood, White's biting observations on recent American history explore the dark heart of suburbia. Both shocking and funny, personal and philosophical, The Idea of Home displays what life would have been like for Nietzsche and Mark Twain if they had the misfortune of growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1950s and '60s.
