The extraordinary fabric designer Jack Lenor Larsen writes: "Stafford, we met with Terrance [Conran, Stiff's previous boss] years ago! I have accepted telephone interviews for papers and polls but feel books too important. So is Home!" As readers we miss not hearing more from Mr. Larsen, but he's right about one thing. Home is a satisfying and provocative, as well as enlightening and downright enjoyable, book.
