At a turning point in his life, writer Michael Pollan found himself dreaming of a small wood-frame hut in the woods near his house–a place to work, but also a “shelter for daydreams.” Weaving the practical with the philosophical, this book presents a captivating personal inquiry into the art of architecture, the craft of building, and the meaning of modern work.

In Pollan’s bestselling book Second Nature: A Gardener’s Education, he illustrated his facility with both hoe and pen. In A Place of My Own he hefts the hammer and again records with great intelligence how thoroughly thought and reflection can be woven into our common lives and the patterns of a day’s work. His book’s subtitle, “An Education of an Amateur Builder,” captures much of what this book contains: the lessons learned by a diligent student of architecture, design, and construction. The writing contains no gaps or unsightly seams, and it’s full of clues to readers who share a similar desire to build something tangible in a world that prizes the evanescent.
