From “Estates of the Nation”, Lynsey Hanley

“Social isolation is treated as a fact of life. Women living on higher floors with young families repeatedly lament the fact that they cannot let their children out to play, and often that they don’t see people other than their spouses or children from one day to the next. Several people – usually men living alone – comment on the role of home aquaria in providing quiet company and relieving stress.”
