A Cure for Modern Life

Anna McGovern, illustrations by Charlotte Ager


This little Pottering book is both a discussion and practical guide to pottering. Author Anna McGovern writes with charm about the joy and practicality of living in the meandering moment, not asking too much of yourself and yet still getting things done in the gentlest of ways. This is the book for people who want to discover productivity at an easier pace, and above all the contentment you achieve when accepting that you can only do what you can do. A true ode to slow living and an antidote to the stresses of modern life.

Anna is a digital producer. After applying for a job and not getting an interview, she decided upon a part-time career break one day a week to recharge and potter, and found the power and pleasure in not doing very much. This is her first book.
