Summary
"Through the author's travels in Europe and the United States, [this book] explores the quest for place that compels and defines us: the things we carry, how politics infuse geography, media's depictions of an idea of home, the ancient and modern reverberations of the word "hotel," and the ceaseless discovery generated by encounters with self and others on familiar and foreign ground. Frank posits that in fact time itself may be our ultimate, inhabited place--the "vastest real estate we know," with a "stunningly short" lease"--
