Introduction by Allan Gurganus. Photographic historian and researcher Cheryl Moch has compiled hundreds of contemporary and vintage photographs and literary passages that perfectly evoke the various emotions and images associated with "home." Like Algonquin's highly praised OUT ON THE PORCH, Cheryl Moch's FEELS LIKE HOME conveys a nostalgia for the homes we grew up in, or perhaps always hoped for. And it evokes longing for the homes of our dreams, the ones we might someday find. "FEELS LIKE HOME reminds us of the magic of photographs that draw us into other people's worlds."--San Antonio Express-News.

From the Inside Flap:

Feels like home. That's what we say when we settle into our favorite armchair and draw up grandmother's handmade quilt. Home is the place where, when we are young, we feel safe and protected, where we sit down to family dinners at the kitchen table.

Home is the place we left to go to college or to war. When we struck out on our own, home was a room of our own, an apartment of our own, a house of our own. Home was - and is - the place where we are most ourselves, and the place where we most want to be.

FEELS LIKE HOME is a love song in words and pictures, evoking the warmth of the homes we grew up in and the longing for the homes of our dreams. More than one hundred vintage and contemporary photographs are collected here, alongside poignant and sometimes humorous reflections from our most beloved writers. Novelist Allan Gurganus provides a thought-provoking introduction to this elegant volume. In his essay, "Home in Time," Gurganus invites us into some of the homes of his childhood and reflects on the sometimes desperate meaning of the "homeplace" to southerners like himself.

FEELS LIKE HOME is the perfect gift for homesick friends and family, and, for yourself, a well-deserved homecoming.

From the Back Cover:

IF IT FEELS LIKE HOME...

"Give any child of five a piece of blank paper. Provide a new box of pointy crayons. Leave the kid along for about three minutes. And that young artist - however scarily computer literate - will yet sketch for you The House. Our House. Ninjas might be floating over it, black holes might now flog its little patch of sky, but these make the place feel more a Home, not less...

There is something quantum about the one roof, those few tables and chair, the single bed on earth you judge as yours. Every human life accommodates one great, typifying love. And, for each of us, there can only be a single formative homeplace.

'Home" is less a concept, more a sensation. If it feels like home, it probably is." (Allan Gurganus, from the Introduction)
