Availability: Out Of Stock

Philip Robinson presents here a reading of gardens that spans centuries and cultures, exploring their mysterious nature, as scenes of romance, danger, beauty and calm. He is as interested in the small, private plot as he is in the grand aristocratic and imperial gardens - from medieval Japan to suburban Arizona. Weaving together extracts from other famous and surprising works (including John Evelyn, Thomas Jefferson, Rainer Maria Rilke, Humphrey Repton and Jane Austen), Robinson has created a wonderful and varied selection of extraordinary facts and lush prose and poetry. At times whimsical, at times serious, but always true to the pursuit of gardening - the purest of human pleasures.
