Wendy Goodman has discovered and published stories on an astonishing array of private houses, notable for their character, personality, and flair, in her 30 years of design hunting. In May I Come In? she visits more than 75 that capture and express their owners' spirit and passions. In this pantheon, imagination and originality hold sway: Artists and eccentrics are the equals of aristocrats and the mandarins of design, and every room has a story to tell. May I Come In? is profusely illustrated with superb images by leading interior photographers, as well as Goodman's own snapshots and memorabilia related to her quests. It is an irresistible visual record of the art of living by one of its most penetrating observers.
