Margaret Horsfield (au). In this witty look at our obsession with cleaning, Horsfield confronts her own dirt demons & scours the social, historical, literary, & psychological nooks & crannies of the world of household chores. Through historical research, countless interviews & an analysis of characters from novels & advertising, she presents such memorable personalities as the woman who sends her small daughter to walk around other people’s houses in white tights. From demented television housewives to the redoubtable Mrs. Beeton, this book runs the gamut of ideas & emotions & throws light on a subject that is rich, strange &, oddly enough, highly entertaining.
