Decorating a Room of One's Own
Decorating a Room of One’s Own brings literary backdrops to the foreground in this wryly affectionate satire of interior design reporting. English professor and humorist Susan Harlan spoofs decorating culture by reimagining its subject as famous fictional homes and “interviews” the residents who reveal their true tastes. Featuring 30 entries of notable dwellings, sidebars, and four-color spot illustrations throughout, Decorating a Room of One’s Own is the ideal book for readers who appreciate fine literature and a good end table.
By Susan Harlan. Published by Abrams Image., October 2018. Hardcover, 208 pages.
