Bryson’s informative and genial chronicle of the evolution of the modern household might be subtitled “a short history of nearly everything in the house.” Moving room by room through his own abode, a 19th-century rural parsonage, he finds in the layout and objects a wealth of history on everything from disease to landscaping to lighting.
