Thirteen years ago, David Owen and his family moved from an apartment in New York City to a two-hundred-year-old house in a small town in rural Connecticut. The result: This endearing, humorous collection of critically acclaimed essays sketching the hardships and joys of owning, renovating, and maintaining a rambling old house. In this book, David Owen pens a charming, touching account of life in the country complete with run-down refrigerators, leaky faucets, and high-powered chain saws.
