Reviews - Life Would Be Perfect...
"A wonderful new book from one of my very favorite writers. It's like having a long, glorious, no-holds-barred conversation with your smartest, funniest friend about all the juicy topics: real estate, class envy, bad dates, family identity, and the discrepancies between the lives we aspire to and the lives we lead. I'm awed by Daum's honesty and talent."
-Curtis Sittenfeld, author of American Wife
"Meghan Daum's writing never fails to entertain and enlighten. She is comedically self-deprecatory and yet always so smart and insightful about her life and what it's like to be in America in the twenty-first century. This latest book is further testimony to her incredible gifts—her lovely prose, her fantastic sense of humor, and her hard-earned wisdom."
-Jonathan Ames, author of Wake Up, Sir!
"Moving in every sense of the word, Life Would Be Perfect if I Lived in That House is a book for anyone who has ever searched for happiness in the floorboards. As a tour guide to the perils of real-estate obsession, Meghan Daum is unfailingly charismatic, tender and honest. If this book were a house, I'd rent a U-haul, fill it with praise and move in tomorrow."
-Sloane Crosley, author of I Was Told There'd Be Cake
"Daum takes the absorbing subject of shelter and runs with it, or rather, lives with it. Her personal odyssey is funny, sharp and charming.”
-Meg Wolitzer, author of The Ten-Year Nap
“Daum’s memoir is witty, stylishly written, sophisticated, and supremely entertaining, but it also strikes chords of deep feeling that are very moving and haunting.”
“A darkly funny and ever-more-revealing journey into a certain relationship with shelter—that of relentless obsession.”
-Janet Fitch, author of White Oleander and Paint It Black
