The View From #410
is a unique autobiographical account by Jean K. Mason, founder of a multigenerational urban cohousing community.
In her honest and spunky voice, Jean tells of Cambridge Cohousing’s journey into being.

Jean Mason captures many of the typical struggles and joys of being in on the ground floor of a big, ambitious community project and offers valuable perspective to anyone starting a community. She tells of momentous triumphs and also of quarrels and routine events, such that one gets the big picture as well as the up-close and personal angle.

Intermingled with the story of the community’s beginning is a glimpse of the author’s remarkable life. Mason, who is now in her 80s, has been an activist, mother and grandmother, and her wit and practical attitude color her writing.

Follow this author on her quest for an alternative lifestyle that fosters support and cooperation.
