Books Info:

View from a Shed free pdf 'View from a Shed' is not a book about gardening. It is a book about people who garden. People like Mrs Fuller, almost 100 years old, who remembers watching supervised Italian POWs during WW1, demolish the local manor house- General Safi who was the Protector of the King of Afghanistan but fled his native country after being imprisoned and tortured- and Michael Wale who has had an allotment since 1980 and has an obsession with compost. Allotments have always been a huge part of urban life and it is that history that informs Wale's narrative. As he takes the reader on a tour of the seasons in his allotment world, he engages with his fellow gardeners and tells their stories.
