Meghan Daum, a humour writer, lives a fast life in the Gen-x superhighway, is a nomad; she moves dozens of times, and finally decides to settle down to a life of domestic life in – horror! – Nebraska. The rent is cheap and her boyfriend is an “aging slacker” and the farmhouse which she inhabits has a sagging porch and a great view. She downs whisky on the porch and keyboards a novel. From then on life changes and money and fame pour in like a flood. Then she decides to move again, this time to Los Angeles. Her novel is named Life Would Be Perfect If I Lived in That House and a review appears here.
