Roald Dahl was born on this day in 1916. So it’s no surprise that there is a drive to raise £500,000 to renovate and move the shed he wrote in. Seems a lot of money to me.
It is interesting how some writers are attracted to sheds. I read somewhere that Philip Pullman writes in one as well but my memory may be wrong on this. Incidentally, he is said to be working on ‘The Book of Dust’ which will be well worth a look. I think Lyra is a fantastic character and recommend his trilogy His Dark Materials: (Northern Lights or The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass.)
