In Interior Designs, her fifth novel from Black Sparrow, Sherril Jaffe rediscovers the resonant central theme of her last effort, House Tours ('grounded, solid' - The Village Voice): the distinct 'character' of dwelling place revealed in the ways those places affect and reflect emotional states.

In a series of short, deceptively simple interlinked prose vignettes, Jaffe here explores the multiple meanings of 'home': an inner space, spiritual extension of ourselves; a place of shelter and protection from an impermanent world; a potential storehouse of profound affective memories. Gentle humour is an important means for Jaffe, whose ends are rueful understanding and quiet illumination.

From 'Our Flat Was Built':

'These dusty shelves reminded me of what I had seen once visiting in the house of a couple I never really got to know. Inside the bathroom of that house, beside the sink, were a set of glass shelves. The woman of the house was somewhat shorter than I, and, while the bottom two shelves were sparkling clean, the ones higher up were, like my kitchen shelves, covered in dust. She didn't see them, so she didn't dust them. From her point of view, the house was clean. However, she was limited by her point of view, and later I heard that her husband divorced her'.
