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.
"[A] delightful debut... McGovern's steady, bright prose and
clear-eyed suggestions fill the book: Pottering is not glamorous.
Pottering is not a lifestyle concept, and does not take practice.
Just be. Those who have tried their hand at hygge, lagom, coorie
and the like will find themselves right at home here."
"The book is filled with gorgeous, evocative illustrations whose lighthearted and inviting scenes show people pottering through work in a garden and eating dinner with friends. Its descriptions of the practices and purposes of pottering are apt and unadorned, and its charming British diction is inviting. Pottering is an accessible text that suggests slowing down and savoring life." Foreword Reviews
"This is a natural next-step for followers of notions like Danish hygge and Marie Kondo's tidying up." Booklist
