Do short stories count? I just got through reading "The Day Off" by Alicia Davis.

It's on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Day-Off-Alicia-Davis-ebook/dp/B01NAZ0I3D

I just started reading Middletown, about the day-to-day life of a typical urban community in middle America. It was published in 1929 with research begun around 1925. The authors called the small city "Middletown" although the actual city is Muncie, IN. My mom and my grandparents lived there for years, although my mom left after college. My grandparents lived there until they died.

I've just started it. I suppose most people these days wouldn't touch it - I can just see their eyes glaze over... And though I've barely started, already I see how different times were. For example, they call it "getting a living" instead of "making a living." Also "making a home, training the young." And since this work was done in the 1920s, the authors talked to folks who had lived there since the mid-1800s.
