Biting The Dust: The Joys Of Housework by Margaret Horsfield
In this witty look at our obsession with cleaning, Margaret Horsfield scours the social, historical, literary, and psychological nooks and crannies of the world of household chores. From demented television housewives to the redoubtable Mrs. Beeton, Biting the Dust runs the gamut of ideas and emotions. As we pause repeatedly to recognize our mothers, our friends, and ourselves, we ask what we really do around the house and why. Biting the Dust throws light on a subject that is rich, strange, and, oddly enough, highly entertaining.
