Through her incisive questioning, original writing, and comic parallel reveries, Toni Schlesinger creates miniature documentaries on the lives, passions, hopes, and heartbreaks of many of New York City's millions. These are people who make movies in their living room and then sleep in it later. Some live minimally. Others surround themselves with their baby teeth, 30 modernist chairs, 50 loaves of Wonder Bread, 500 volumes of Moby Dick, and more. From all walks of life, they discuss the trajectories - positive and/or negative - of their lives right up into their very own living space being put on the line: Every interview is a vivid and insightful portrait. Illus., b&w photos. 318p.
