A Place of My Own: The Architecture of Daydreams

A Place of My Own: The Architecture of Daydreams Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michael Pollan's unmatched ability to draw lines of connection between our everyday experiences?whether eating, gardening, or building?and the natural world has been the basis for the popular success of his many works of nonfiction, including the genre-defining bestsellers, The Botany of Desire, The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food. With this updated edition of his earlier book A Place of My Own, listeners can revisit the inspired, intelligent, and often hilarious story of Pollan's realization of a room of his own?a small, wooden hut, his ?shelter for daydreams? ? built with his admittedly unhandy hands. Inspired by both Thoreau and Mr. Blandings, A Place of My Own not only works to convey the history and meaning of all human building, it also marks the connections between our bodies, our minds, and the natural world. an inspired meditation on the complex relationship between space, the human body, and the human spirit.? ? Francine du Plessix Gray

Synopsis:

Invoking the titans of architecture, literature, and philosophy, from Vitrivius to Thoreau, from the Chinese masters of feng shui to the revolutionary Frank Lloyd Wright, Pollan brilliantly chronicles a realm of blueprints, joints, and trusses as he peers into the ephemeral nature of "houseness" itself.
