All the Way Home: Building a Family in a Falling-Down House by David Giffels

Regular price $6.00 Sale

With the lyrics of a Replacements song running through his head ('Look me in the eye, then tell me that I'm satisfied'), David Giffels—with his wife and infant son in tow—combs the environs of Akron, Ohio, in search of the perfect house for his burgeoning family. The quest ends at the front door of a beautiful but decaying Gilded Age mansion, the once-grand former residence of a rubber-industry executive. It lacks functional plumbing and electricity, leaks rain like a cartoon shack, and is infested with all manner of wildlife. But for a young father at a coming-of-age crossroads, the challenge is precisely the allure. All the Way Home is Giffels's funny, poignant, and confounding journey through the great adventure of restoring a crumbling house on the way to discovering what the words 'grown up' and 'home' really mean. This 2009 Harper Paperbacks Paperback is in Mint condition.
