The O of Home is a remarkably honest, unpretentious, clear-eyed account of a courageous woman getting rid of her worldly goods, and a lot of emotional baggage, and finding a new and exhilarating freedom. --Guardian Books, Robert McCrum
This is a book that opens the heart. Tender, thought-provoking, compassionate, and insightful, it leads us on a circular journey from understanding what we need and mean by home, through experiences of homelessness and forced displacement, to a true coming home to the self and the divine. --Marian McNaughton, Chair of Trustees of the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust
Home - in the heart, in the head, a physical space that shifts and moves withemotions, a locale, a dream, a site of conflict and cruelty and also intimacy and safety, homelands, exile- all this and more are explored in this tender and moving book which makes you wonder what home really is or ever was. --Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, Columnist and author of Settler's Cookbook a memoir
