About this product
- DescriptionGetting what you want today is increasingly linked to buying something. But is the purchase always eugh? Picking up where simplifying may t satisfy, Dematerializing ackwledges the pleasures, along with the pitfalls, of living in a material world. With a sharp reporter's eye and a wry sensibility, Jane Hammerslough encourages readers to explore how a consumption-crazed culture affects their own relationships with objects. By considering what possessions can and can't do, and by exploring where belief in the magic of the material encroaches on belief in ourselves and other people, Dematerializing offers insight into the pressures of living in a possession-obsessed environment--and ways to tame materialism in our own lives. Grounded by real-world examples, research, and the author's own experience, this inspiring book is for those who appreciate having nice things but are also disturbed by the control nice things sometimes have on their lives.
- Author BiographyAn award-winning journalist, Jane Hammerslough has written feature stories and essays for Parenting, Child, Garden Design, Saveur, Travel & Leisure, Country Living, and other national magazines. She lives with her husband and two sons in Westport, Connecticut.
