Decorating a Room of One's Own: Conversations on Interior Design with Miss Havisham, Jane Eyre, Victor Frankenstein, Elizabeth Bennet, Ishmael, and Other Literary Notables

What would Little Women be without the charms of the March family?s cozy New England home? Or Wuthering Heights without the ghost-infested Wuthering Heights? Getting lost in the setting of a good book can be half the pleasure of reading, and Decorating a Room of One?s Own brings literary backdrops to the foreground in this wryly affectionate satire of interior design repor What would Little Women be without the charms of the March family?s cozy New England home? Or Wuthering Heights wi...

    This is a quirky fun book, and great nostalgia for lovers of the now-defunct Toast website. Former Toast contributor Susan Harlan, has imagined decorating and interior design advice from major literary characters like Miss Havisham and Marilla from Anne of Green Gables. ...

    A collection of ?interviews? with the owners of literary houses, palaces, ships, etc. What a fun little book. The Interludes between chapters were so creative. My favorite...King Lear and Boo Radley discuss being ?Outsider Domiciles.? ...

    I?m not quite sure what I expected but it sure wasn?t this. Perhaps I?m not as well acquainted with the books and characters being asked about their decorating schemes to appreciate what I think is intended to be funny. After reading a quarter of the book I skimmed through the re...

    This was a lot of fun. I would recommend skipping the introduction, as it establishes the author as completely insufferable as a person and will prejudice you against the rest of the book. The meat of the book itself is very fun and witty, if occasionally a little too in love with its ...

    The concept behind this book intrigued me to read it; however, the book is insufferable and drips with self-Importance (the prolix introduction already sets off alarms) and an ?Aren?t-I-so-hip-and-modern-and-clever?? atmosphere that never allows you to pretend you?re reading th...
