PAWcast, Princeton Alumni Weekly’s podcast, has posted my conversation with associate editor Carrie Compton about the book and all things clutter-related:
This month, Jennifer Howard ’85 discusses her book, Clutter: An Untidy History. Faced with the daunting task of cleaning out her elderly mother’s chaotic and jam-packed home, Howard began to ask herself about our relationship with objects, and what drives our need to accumulate them. She tells her own story and charts the path our belongings take when we finally dispose of them.
“To live intentionally with things is, I think, the goal.”
