Description: "Sex and Real Estate" is a witty, informative, and thought-provoking study of our complex relation to the ideas and actualities of house and home.

With vast erudition lightly carried, Marjorie Garber, professor of English and director of the Humanities Center at Harvard University, ranges through literature, art, film, journalism, criticism, and the hard evidence of everyday experience, and gives us an acute analysis of the ways in which we think about the places we hang our hats. She discussed the House as Beloved ("Your house is the other person in your life, " declares an architectural designer.), as Mother ("The house, we would like to think, loves us."), as Body ("both an ancient figure and a persistent desire"). She writes about the Dream House, the Trophy House ("We could call the purchasers of celebrity homes 'house-groupies."), the House as History, and the Summer House ("When you're seventeen, you dream of a summer romance. When you're forty-seven, you dream of a summer home.").
