Author Info
Michael Pollan
Michael Pollan was born in 1955 and grew up in Syosset, on Long Island, New York. He was educated at Bennington College, Oxford University, and Columbia University, where he received his Master's degree in English in 1981. He first gained prominence as a journalist, writing for New York Times Magazine beginning in 1987, and later becoming an executive editor at Harper's. His first book, SECOND NATURE, published in 1991, is a witty chronicle of his trials and tribulations starting out as a gardener in New England, and quickly became known as a seminal text in the gardening genre. Following two more award-winning gardening-related titles, Pollan broke into the big time with THE OMNIVORE'S DILEMMA in 2006. This tremendously arresting and insightful analysis of the ecology of eating caused ripples big enough to mark a culture shift within multiple industries, pushing the move towards organic whole foods and spawning a slew of similar titles by imitators. Pollan's own follow-up, IN DEFENSE OF FOOD, became an instant bestseller, cementing his place among the most relevant and prominent non-fiction writers of the early 21st century.
From the Publisher
Annotation Michael Pollan mixes the practical and the philosophical as he pursues his dream of building a small structure behind his house in rural Connecticut so that he can have a place of his own to think, write, daydream. He is disarmingly clear about how un-handy he is, but that's okay because he can hire an architect and eventually a carpenter to help. Pollan's real job is to research and write about the wide-ranging and often fascinating issues that he encounters along the way, from architectural history to the meaning of work.
Editors Note The author describes the process--design, footings, framing, roofing, windows, and trim--by which he created a space for writing.
