Shaw and His Rotating Writing Shed

It’s a rare booklover who doesn’t enjoy learning about the private lives of his/her favorite authors. Sometimes these tidbits of  “literary gossip” turn out to be relevant to the methods those authors use to produce their works.

For example, did you know that George Bernard Shaw liked to write in a shed that he had built to rotate with the movement of the sun across the sky over his back yard? And that photographs exist of said writing shed? Take a look.
