'44 Things is a response to the life that goes on around me as I live and work with my family at home... Forty four pieces of different kinds of writing that have one thing in common - they are written by this woman, me, who lives at this time in her life fully and imaginatively sustained by what goes on in her domestic world.'Kirsty GunnIn 44 Things, Kirsty Gunn celebrates her home and her family. This bedside book is a mosaic of personal reflections written over the course of one year in moments stolen from the vibrant and chaotic world that inspired them.
