In our modern world, where technology offers the promise of mobility and flexibility, the lines between work and home become increasingly blurred. In What's Happening To Home? Jackson explores the ever-changing role of home in our lives. She updates and redefines our image of home without shortchanging the work lives so many of us value. She explores ways to preserve intimacy and caring at home without returning to the rigid ideals of the past. What's Happening To Home? goes beyond debates about square footage and working moms and helps readers start thinking about larger questions of the value of home for everyone. It will inspire readers to catch hold of home, to keep it from slipping through their fingers, while redefining home to fit a mobile age.
