It's very kind of 'Wuthering Heights' where my parents' house is, moors and deserted. It's very wild and mystic.
I grew up in Des Moines. My dad had a house full of books, things like P.G. Wodehouse books and 'Wuthering Heights' by Emily Bronte.
My mother used to push 'Wuthering Heights' on me as a boy, and I sensed from her breathy description of the story that it would make me laugh. I have no plans to find out if this is true.
The house of delusions is cheap to build but drafty to live in.
