"I wrote most of my biggest writing project ever in this little shed over six years. I bought this cabin and had it trucked to the backyard of the farmhouse that we own in Vermont during a 10-day period when my husband was off in Uzbekistan teaching a course on banking. I'm not even making that up. He has never quite gotten over the fact that he was not consulted about a new building being plonked on the property while he was away (we aren't those kind of people really) nor that it cost as much for me to get the shed as he earned teaching Uzbeks about banking.
The shed was built by Amish people in Pennsylvania and came to our backyard on the back of the truck. It's still in great shape.
While she was writing it in her shed she surrounded herself with English objects - such as pottery, postage stamps and an old pound note to keep her inspired.
