Mickey Pearlman has gathered together a group of writing women whose memories of home present a panorama of experience: Sandra Benítez, Maxine Hong Kingston, Mary Morris, Kathryn Harrison, Francine Prose, Arlene Hirschfelder, Erica Jong, Jill McCorkle, Melinda Worth Popham, Julie Smith, lucille clifton, Dani Shapiro, Marci Hershman, Meg Pei, Carole Maso, Rosellen Brown, Jane Shapiro, Sylvia Watanabe, and Lois Lowry.

They remember firstborn children, destructive fires, homelessness, cherished workplaces, the sting of racism, and the safety of language while they dream again of the smell of rising bread, the sound of a daughter’s voice, and the scent of wet morning grass. A Place Called Home: Twenty Writing Women Remember is a collection of original writing that you will cherish, give to others, and come to regard not only as a book, but as a letter from a friend....

    A collection of essays by women writers describing the meaning of "home". While each essay was in and of itself interesting, I would have enjoyed the book more if I had recognized the work of any of the authors. They may well be a stellar group of writers but it would have been helpful if the editor had included book titles and credited to each author.

    This is a collection of stories in which several women writers explain what "home" means to them. I enjoyed how these authors looked back and shared some of their favorite childhood memories and it made me reflect on my own home in which I grew up in. An enjoyable read.
