How We Live Now: Redefining Home and Family in the 21st Century by Bella DePaulo




How We Live Now: Redefining Home and Family in the 21st Century was named one of the Best Nonfiction Books of 2015 by Kirkus. For How We Live Now: Redefining Home and Family in the 21st Century, I traveled around the country asking people to show me their homes and tell me about their life spaces – the places, spaces, and people who are most important to them. I combined their personal stories with relevant research from the social sciences and some historical context to show the innovative ways in which contemporary Americans have moved beyond living in a nuclear family home in the suburbs. There are chapters on living in community (including co-housing communities), sharing a home, solo living, multi-generational households, couples living apart together, not-so-single parents, and seniors. A place to live is also a way to live, and Americans have never had as many choices as they do now.

How We Live Now: Redefining Home and Family in the 21st Century by Bella DePaulo is available at Amazon.com.
