Description

An amusing and thought-provoking compendium of stories, anecdotes, writings and reflections from this acute, knowledgeable and irreverent commentator. A career spent travelling the world looking at gardens, and meeting their sometimes eccentric custodians has resulted in a fund of unlikely experiences and encounters. There was, for example, that alligator-infested American garden…or the time our hero set up his tent in the woods at Great Dixter in a thunderstorm, only to find he was not where he thought he was. On a more serious note, the book contains some of Tim Richardson’s most influential and provocative columns as well as articles and essays on specific gardens, places and landscape themes.

Description

An amusing and thought-provoking compendium of columns, articles, essays and reviews from this acute, knowledgeable and irreverent commentator. In a career that has ranged from Country Life to Wallpaper* a spanning the full range between the two, and latterly including the Daily Telegraph and the New York Times a Tim Richardson has gone, both intellectually and geographically, where few other garden writers dare to tread. There are no articles here about the best ways to grow sweet peas or potatoes: Tim is more likely to venture into the realms of art, philosophy or politics. This collection contains articles which have influenced the way we think about gardens a as well as one or two which proved too hot to handle and resulted in his being fired as a columnist.
