A Place of My Own: The Architecture of Daydreams. 

  • Penguin Books

A dazzling individual investigation into the specialty of design, the art of building, and the significance of present day work

“A room of one’s own: Is there anyone who hasn’t at some time longed for such a place, hasn’t turned those delicate words over until they’d accepted a tenable shape?”

At the point when Michael Pollan chose to plant a garden, the outcome was the acclaimed bestseller Second Nature. In A Place of My Own, he turns his sharp knowledge to the specialty of working, as he relates the way toward outlining and developing a little one-room structure on his rustic Connecticut property—a place in which he would have liked to peruse, compose, and stare off into space, worked with his own particular two unhandy hands.

Michael Pollan’s unmatched capacity to draw lines of association between our regular encounters – in the case of eating, planting, or building- – and the characteristic world has been the reason for the famous achievement of his numerous works of true to life, including the class characterizing bestsellers The Omnivore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food. With this refreshed release of his before book A Place of My Own, perusers can return to the enlivened, savvy, and frequently amusing story of Pollan’s acknowledgment of his very own room – a little, wooden hovel, his “safe house for wanders off in fantasy land”- – worked with his in fact unhandy hands. Motivated by both Thoreau and Mr. Blandings, A Place of My Own not just attempts to pass on the history and importance of all human building, it likewise denotes the associations between our bodies, our psyches, and the common world.

A Place of My Own: The Architecture of Daydreams;how to change your mind,in defense of food,cooked a natural history of transformation.
