    About The Book

    When Kathleen Hirsch first moved to Jamaica Plain, an unassuming neighborhood in Boston, she was looking to belong, to set down roots and raise a family. Was it possible, she wondered, to find community in a contemporary city? A Home in the Heart of a City is Hirsch’s exuberant and hopeful response. We follow her, a self-described novice in the ways of community life, as she meets extraordinary individuals, including the protector of a local park, a real-estate developer with visions of the agora, and a corporate lawyer turned community advocate. They become her guides, showing that community life is as much about the individual choices we make to work, play, and associate in certain ways as it is about the grassroots institutions we build to foster sustainable community life.Jamaica Plain has culture and cappuccino, skilled craftspeople and a community newspaper, upper-middle-class homes and low-income projects. Both economically and racially diverse, this populace has achieved that rarest of American dreams: community.

    In this invaluable book, Hirsch shows how cities and their inhabitants can remake themselves into real communities.
