I bought the book to support the cause - all proceeds go to Shelter - but was impressed by the quality and variety of the short stories, which cover all aspects of the theme of home. The standard of writing is excellent and the stories are written in such a wide variety of styles that there will be something for everyone in this compilation. Often an emotional read, but never dull. Highly recommended.
I bought this anthology primarily to support Shelter, but didn't expect such a huge range of beautiful stories.
I'm about 2/3 of the way through, but just wanted to encourage others to buy it. The theme works so well, drawing together a mixture of genres and styles to bring us all right down to almost the very bottom of Marlow's Hierarchy of Needs - home. Without naming any favourite stories, the overall result is sobering and uplifting in equal parts: an important reminder that what we all seek most is the very same thing.
I bought this collection yesterday in anticipation of a transatlantic flight I'm making tomorrow & I couldn't resist dipping into the collection on the train yesterday. I was hooked & had to keep reading. I love the diversity of approachs/styles & my favorites so far are 'Motherhood' and 'Room with a View'. Excellent cause to support as well - what a great idea!
I am not really a fan of short stories but bought this book as it is supporting a great cause. However it contains some beautiful writing with a good variety of styles and topics, and is a good read. Well worth spending money on and time reading.
