John Steinbeck: shedworker

Continuing our look at writer John Steinbeck's life in garden offices, here are images of his 'Joyous Garde' writing shed (named for Sir Lancelot's castle), a hexagonal structure at Sag Harbor inspired by Mark Twain's own garden office with fantastic views over the cove near Bluff Point. The attractive hut was built by Steinbeck himelf and he worked in a director's chair inside which he labelled 'Siege Perilous' - he wrote Travels with Charley and Winter of Our Discontent inside.
