A Neurotic Hope
Title: “Happier at Home: Kiss More, Jump More, Abandon a Project, Read Samuel Johnson, and My Other Experiments in the Practice of Everyday Life”
Author: Gretchen Rubin
Blurb: “One Sunday afternoon, as she unloaded the dishwasher, Gretchen Rubin felt hit by a wave of homesickness. Homesick — why? She was standing right in her own kitchen. She felt homesick, she realized, with love for home itself. ‘Of all the elements of a happy life,’ she thought, ‘my home is the most important.’ In a flash, she decided to undertake a new happiness project, and this time, to focus on home.”
Review: “I love scent, too, but the number of pages devoted to Rubin’s exploration of smell, including creating a Shrine to Scent, just seemed like an awful lot of attention spent trying to elevate the incredibly mundane.”
