    I read Stuff (the subject of the William Davies King review) as “beach reading” this summer, so I am somewhat puzzled by the neutral-to-negative tone of the review. I come from a family of hoarders that may as well have been described in Stuff as those families where hoarding behavior is carefully negotiated – relegated to the garage or a spare bedroom. I like that the book spoke directly to both people who engage in hoarding behaviors and their affected family members. To me, it was very humanizing and did not characterize all hoarders as lonely and disconnected.
