Dirt

The Quirks, Habits, and Passions of Keeping House

By Mindy Lewis (editor)

$15.95 USD, Trade Paper Original, May 2009

This is a collection everyone can relate to: a multidimensional look at the universal challenge of keeping our stuff, our dwellings, and our personal space clean and uncluttered. How we feel about keeping house speaks volumes about who we are, our roots, relationships, and our outlook on life.
