Description - Blubberland by Elizabeth Farrelly

Why is western humanity, richer and safer than ever before, also fatter, sadder and more fearful? Blubberland is a witty and engaging critique of the way we live now. Leading architecture critic and writer Elizabeth Farrelly asks why we find it so hard to abandon habits we know to be destructive, from the five-car garages of the McMansion to the insatiable urge to shop, shop, shop. Ranging widely from architecture and city-planning to truth, beauty, nature and desire, Blubberland is a smart, thoughtful and stylish argument for turning things around.
