A Rootless Cosmopolitan’s Guide to Home-hunting is an illustrated commentary on the Wizard of Oz story. It centres on Dorothy’s perilous journey through Oz and her frustrated search for home. However, the publication is not a simple retelling of L.Frank Baum's original text. Instead, it is an ‘anti-book’ and employs devices that subvert common assumptions about the Oz story's content and form: the characters reference contemporary popular culture, there is no beginning, middle or end per se and the reader must destroy the book to complete it. It is designed to be complicated to read, and hence, underpins the heroine's central dilemma; Dorothy's search for the meaning of 'home'.
