Meredith Maran is the author of The New Old Me: My Late-Life Reinvention.
So shoot me: I'm a feminist, and a homebody. Domestic goddess. Nest-featherer. The world might be falling down around me (as it has, in fact, been doing since November)—but give me a cozy, uncluttered, tastefully decorated house to come home to, a well-stocked kitchen in which to bake my mother's brownies and simmer the marmalade I make from the bounty of my own lemon tree, and I'll be fine.
