Product description

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. [A]n inspired meditation on the complex relationship between space, the human body, and the human spirit. Francine du Plessix Gray"
