One of our finest writers on one of her greatest loves. Jamaica Kincaid's first garden in Vermont was a plot in the middle of her front lawn. There, to the consternation of more experienced friends, she planted only seeds of the flowers she liked best. In My Garden (Book) she gathers all she loves about gardening and plants, and examines it generously, passionately, and with sharp, idiosyncratic discrimination. Kincaid's affections are matched in intensity only by her dislikes. She loves spring and summer but cannot bring herself to love winter, for it hides the garden. She adores the rhododendron Jane Grant, and appreciates ordinary Blue Lake string beans, but abhors the Asiatic lily. The sources of her inspiration -- seed catalogues, the gardener Gertrude Jekyll, gardens like Monet's at Giverny -- are subjected to intense scrutiny. She also examines the idea of the garden on Antigua, where she grew up. My Garden (Book) is an intimate, playful, and penetrating book on gardens, the plants that fill them, and the persons who tend them.

Cort Sinnes knows more about gardening than just about anybody with a green thumb. The one thing he knows best of all, though, is just how magical a green space can be. In My Garden is Sinnes's simple but elegant tribute to gardening. Like the best writers of any genre, he distills his topic to its essence, in the process sharing the countless layers of it all.In My Garden, also illustrated by the author, tells the simple story of Sinnes and his two dogs-once individually known as Scout and Spot, but now both going by "Scott"-as they live and relish life in their garden. That such a slim volume can capture a philosophy of gardening, relationships, purpose, and life shows that Sinnes's talents reach far beyond growing and cultivating plants. "I like weeds because they are so obvious and simple. They just sit there waiting to be pulled." "The hoe is a useful tool. Any toxins-real or imagined-drain easily through the handle and into the soil, where they quietly disappear." "The hammock is a perfect invention."Highlighted by simple, watercolor sketches, the wisdom in this book will appeal to gardeners, those looking for a gardening gift, and anyone with an eye for simple living relished to its fullest. Sinnes plants, tends, and waters this story until it blossoms in a golden splash of the setting sun. Delightful!

This is the story of a garden in India that evolved into farm and my inner journey during the process of its creation. It is the story of the transformation of an outer landscape from what was virtually a desert to a productive garden. It is the story of a process of inner transformation and deeper surrender that the work made possible. I invite you, with this book, to join me on this journey of outer and inner discovery. For wherever we are and whatever our work, we all share a similar process when we seek to become conscious and to understand the mystery of our being.

Excerpt from My Garden IT is not proposed to submit excuses for this work. Nowadays everybody with a garden larger than a tablecloth rushes into print concerning it, and expects us to follow through the whole procession of the seasons on that particular and precious plot. We are confronted with each plant, grass-blade, and worm-cast we have the usual quotations from the poets; the usual round of successes during some little passing outburst of climate; the customary failures under our normal conditions of weather. And now I am going to do it all over again; because to remain silent, if you have a garden, is to be noto fious. That we may escape charges of eccentricity, therefore, we should all write garden books. In my case the time has come; the task can be evaded no more.

‘Ruchira Mukerjee’s Toad in my Garden is the story of two women, Megha and Damyanti, one young and the other middle-aged, whose domestic lives are irrevocably shaken by the appearance of Oxford-educated Ashwin. One of the novel’s strong points is its driving narrative, another is its choice of the small-town setting of Allahabad, in north India, instead of the oft-used metropolitan map. Mukerjee paints the town’s exterior and interior characteristics with vividness and subtlety. The novel is psychologically acute and rich in detail and atmosphere . . . With this novel Ruchira Mukerjee makes a confident start to what one hopes will be a long career’ Sudeep Sen, Guardian ‘Mukerjee pinpoints the historical moment of her story exactly, showing us Indian responses to such events as the publication of The Female Eunuch. Her sense of the importance of crowds in Indian life is also acute . . . Mukerjee handles some tricky subject matter with an admirable lightness of touch, and her startling ending is well worth the wait’ Andrew Biswell, Daily Telegraph

Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, discouragement, or stress of any kind? If so, you will want to read Rita Curry’s book, Stories From My Garden. Rita has suffered from these same conditions, and more. In fact, according to one psychological evaluation, she was close to lapsing into a catatonic state. She has, however, made great gains in her recovery. A large part of Rita’s recovery was achieved while working in her garden. As she observed the beauty there, and then listened in her heart to what the Lord Jesus was teaching her through that beauty, Rita composed the stories that you can read in her book. She says that she has been blessed with the wonderful stories, and she wants to share them with you. Each story, she says, has shown her “another facet of the Lord’s love”. Rita is sure that the stories will speak to you, too, and help you with your own recovery. Find hope for your difficulties and encouragement in your trials in Rita Curry’s book, Stories From My Garden.
