Synopsis

'Wake up Strivers! Grab your almanacs! Let's get idle again!' Dominic West (from the Foreword)


As lockdown has caused us all to revaluate our lives, becoming more self-reliant and living in closer harmony with nature have emerged as important priorities. Many of us have decided to up sticks and leave the city behind for a less frenetic existence in the country. Whether you've already made the move, or are dreaming of doing so one day, this is the book for you.


Covering bee-keeping, poultry rearing, pig farming, bread baking, wood-chopping, fire-laying, bartering, home-schooling and much more, How to Live in the Country is the perfect source of inspiration for old hands and beginners alike: useful, informative but also refreshingly honest and realistic.


Tom Hodgkinson draws on the wisdom of an eclectic range of thinkers and writers as he guides us through each month of the year, giving lists of tasks for both garden and animal husbandry, offering tips and short-cuts, and weaving in stories about his own experience of raising a young family in rural Devon.



Tom Hodgkinson is the founder and editor of the Idler and the author of bestselling books including How to be Idle, How to be Free, The Idle Parent and Business for Bohemians. In 2014, after more than a decade in rural Devon, he and his wife Victoria Hull returned to London and established the Idler Academy, which hosts literary events and offers online courses in academic and practical subjects including philosophy, calligraphy, music, business skills, English grammar, public speaking, dancing, drawing and self-defence.
