Summary

One man's quirky, heartfelt quest to meet the neighbors-and to rediscover what it means to live as more than strangers next door After living in the same house for most of his life, Peter Lovenheim was struck by an odd fact of modern life: No one really knew anyone else. With wit and generosity, he takes us inside the homes, minds, and hearts of his neighbors. In the process, he explores a thought-provoking question: Do neighborhoods still matter-and is something lost when we isolate ourselves instead of fostering a sense of community?
