A Place of My Own: The Architecture of Daydreams (Playaway Adult Nonfiction) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Michael Pollans unmatched ability to draw lines of connection between our everyday experienceswhether eating, gardening, or buildingand 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 Omnivores 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 Pollans realization of a room of his owna 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
