About the Book

I Am Homeless If This Is Not My Home

Lorrie Moore’s first novel since A GATE AT THE STAIRS --- a daring, meditative exploration of love and death, passion and grief, and what it means to be haunted by the past, both by history and the human heart.

From “one of the most acute and lasting writers of her generation” (Caryn James; The New York Times) comes a ghost story set in the 19th and 21st centuries, an elegiac consideration of grief, devotion (filial and romantic), and the vanishing and persistence of all things --- seen and unseen.

With her distinctive, irresistible wordplay, and singular wry humor and wisdom, Lorrie Moore has given us a magic box of longing and surprise as she writes about love and rebirth and the pull towards life. Bold, meditative and theatrical, this novel is an inventive, poetic portrait of lovers and siblings as it questions the stories we have been told which may or may not be true. I AM HOMELESS IF THIS IS NOT MY HOME takes us through a trap door, into a windswept, imagined journey to the tragic-comic landscape that is, unmistakably, the world of Lorrie Moore.
