Twelve by Twelve: A One-Room Cabin Off the Grid and Beyond the American Dream by William Powers

"I know a doctor who makes eleven thousand dollars a year," my mother said.

Hm, is she bragging? That does not sound like a good thing to me. But then neither does living in a 12 x 12 room. My basement apartment in Queens was much bigger. We'll have to see. I don't know that I'll identify with this memoir much!

Hmmm, yeah, that doesn't sound like something to brag about. LOL
