Presents the anatomy and soul of a house as seen through a camera's eye.

In this starkly evocative book, Goffstein uses photographs of a dollhouse made of cardboard and wood that illustrate her views about the relationship between people and the houses they make into homes: "A house has skin / and eyes / and bone, / a head, / a breast, / a heart." People, represented by the same carved wooden figures Goffstein used in Our Prairie Home , "lovingly replace / the house's broken windowpanes / repair its frame, mend its roof" and their "jokes and songs / rise to its ceilings, / and rest beneath its roof." The repetitive photographs are somber, abstract and static. The "breast" of the house, for example, is represented by a wall with three red-framed windows, a paint-peeled joist and a vague shadow. Still, the book's elegant artfulness is bound to be admired by Goffstein's adult fans. All ages.
