About the Author

Laurie Graham was an editor at Scribners for eighteen years and is the author of Rebuilding the House (1990), a memoir, which was selected as a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. She lives in Pittsburgh.


This memoir/sociological and architectural tour of her adoptive town is a well-written mixture of stories: about herself, about Pittsburgh's history, and mostly, about workers at steel mills.... A remarkable, highly personal story of place. - Publishers Weekly ""A book that will resonate with anyone, anywhere, who is interested in the complex relationship between urban landscape and human spirit."" - Associated Press ""Laurie Graham goes so far as to contend that a landscape can work its way into our DNA."" - New York Times Book Review ""One of the strongest notes of affection for Pittsburgh I've read."" - Bod Hoover, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ""A portrait of the people who keep alive the region's traditions in spite of great hardships."" - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ""A beautifully told story."" - Barry Lopez
