Pleasures and Terrors of Domestic Comfort by Peter Galassi 

“Kitchens and bedrooms, couples and children, the expectations and anxieties of American domestic life are laid before us in this lively book of pictures by contemporary American photographers. By turns hilarious and unsettling, this unconventional family album offers rich if conflicting information about the current state of the old relationship between the American Dream and the American Nightmare.”–

The work of more than 50 photographers is represented including Tina Barney, Ellen Brooks, William Eggleston, Mary Frey, Lee Friedlander, Nan Goldin, Nic Nicosia, Nicholas Nixon, Lorie Novak, Cindy Sherman, Sage Sohier, Joel Sternfeld, Larry Sultan, Carrie Mae Weems, and Neil Winokur.
