Een huis vol: een kleine geschiedenis van het dagelijks leven by Bill Bryson, Inge Kok, Peter Diderich

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Een huis vol: een kleine geschiedenis van het dagelijks leven Met hetzelfde enthousiasme en dezelfde nieuwsgierigheid als waarmee hij de geschiedenis van het leven op aarde beschreef richt Bill Bryson zijn blik nu op de huiselijke wereld om zich heen .

Waarom zijn we van alle specerijen op aarde zo gehecht aan zout en peper Waarom hebben vorken vier tanden en niet drie of vijf En wat doet die rij zinloze knopen op de mouwen van een colbert Een huis vol doorgrondt de geschiedenis van deze en andere huiselijke vanzelfsprekendheden aan de hand van een reis door Brysons eigen huis van de ene kamer na de andere de badkamer wordt de geschiedenis van de hygi ne dekeuken van het koken de slaapkamer van seks dood en slapen .

Tot mijn grote verbazing ontdekte ik dat alles wat in de wereld gebeurt alles wat er maar wordt ontdekt of uitgevonden alles waar bitter om wordt gevochten uiteindelijk op een of andere manier in je huis belandt Daardoor is de geschiedenis van het huiselijk leven niet louter een geschiedenis van bedden en banken en fornuizen zoals ik vagelijk had aangenomen maar van scheurbuik en guano en de Eiffeltoren en wandluizen en lijkroof en zo n beetje alles wat er maar ooit is gebeurd Een huis is geen schuilplaats voor de geschiedenis daarbuiten Het is de plek waar de geschiedenis uiteindelijk belandt
