A review of gardens in myth, literature & practice, not for gardening tips, but for how gardens depict what humans are at their best (and worst). The broad scope of the book is riveting. His lucid prose is refreshing.
This book is delightful. It's full of insight into gardens and their meanings for people throughout history. The essays are felicitously written and thought provoking. Espcially good for understanding what it really means to be an Epicurean (it's not just about food and certainly not about gluttony).
