Five notable books on home life

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books on home life:
Room Temperature
by Nicholson Baker

In his first novel, The Mezzanine, Baker earned a reputation for elevating the minutiae of everyday life to a kind of symphony of detail. His follow-up manages to stretch the simple activity of a man bottle-feeding his baby for a few minutes across 128 entertaining pages that explore the wonder of a child's continued growth in the home and in the world. As he observes his child and the living room around him, the narrator marvels at his own journey from infancy to adulthood.
