Home from Nowhere
Remaking Our Everyday World for the 21st Century
In Home from Nowhere Kunstler not only shows that the original American Dream -- the desire for peaceful, pleasant places in which to work and live -- still has a strong hold on our imaginations, but also offers innovative, eminently practical ways to make that dream a reality. Citing examples from around the country, he calls for the restoration of traditional architecture, the introduction of enduring design principles in urban planning, and the development of public spaces that acknowledge our need to interact comfortable with one another.

Detroit Free Press
No one is writing more clearly and ardently about living in America's soul-numbing human habitats and suffering its dreadful consequences.
Kunstler makes a persuasive argument for massive change in how we live and lays out the problems that must be overcome.
The Philadelphia Inquirer
A deliciously wicked over-the-top nonfiction romp across the tortured terrain of suburban America. This book is a wonderful whack-on-the-side-of-the-head to an increasingly complacent country bent on turning everywhere into Nowhere.
