Rules for Roommates

The Ultimate Guide to Reclaiming Your Space and Your Sanity

Page: 192

What could be more fun than having a roommate? If you’re living with a perpetrator of offensive behavior, you can probably think of a hundred reasons why you’d rather be flying solo. Unfortunately, something as trivial as an acid comment about your latest romantic interest can eventually lead to the need for a cease-fire. But still, the benefits can outweigh the risks. Cohabitation can lessen the burden of financial responsibilities, enrich our social lives, provide emotional support, and even add a certain degree of physical safety. (If nothing else, you’ll have someone nearby when you feel the need to check under your bed at night.) Whether you’re already there or not, something can be learned from those who have prevailed, as well as those who have chosen to jump ship. Through their experiences, you will be able to identify the counterproductive things we do that sabotage what could otherwise be a very rewarding relationship.

A classic work of American literature that has not stopped changing minds and lives since it burst onto the literary scene, The Things They Carried is a ground-breaking meditation on war, memory, imagination, and the redemptive power of storytelling.

Taught everywhere—from high school classrooms to graduate seminars in creative writing—it has become required reading for any American and continues to challenge readers in their perceptions of fact and fiction, war and peace, courage and fear and longing. The Things They Carried won France's prestigious Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger and the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize; it was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
