A few nice things people have been saying about the book:

“A lively and perceptive reporter… [Matchar] offers a valuable and astute assessment of the factors that led to the current embracing of domesticity and the consequences of this movement.”

Publishers Weekly

A well-researched look at the resurgence of home life…. Offers intriguing insight into the

renaissance of old-fashioned home traditions.”

Kirkus Reviews

“This book heralds a revolution in the attitudes and values of our society and will certainly divide public opinion in general and women in particular.”

—Elisabeth Badinter, bestselling author of The Conflict: How Modern Motherhood Undermines the Status of Women

“The brilliance of Emily Matchar’s new book, Homeward Bound: Why Women Are Embracing the New Domesticity, is that it exhaustively describes what disillusioned workers are opting into: a slower, more sustainable, and more self-sufficient lifestyle that’s focused on the home…Though the vast majority of Machar’s subjects are women, this is not just a story about gender roles. It’s about what happens when the structures we were raised to buy into don’t provide what they were supposed to provide, and the alternative values that have, for a growing subset of Americans, come to replace them.”
