With selections carefully chosen from both sides of the Atlantic, this anthology pays homage to the great garden writers of the 19th and early 20th centuries while, at the same time, introducing the listener to some of the most original voices of today's generation of garden writers.
Books on gardening have become a marketing phenomenon. However, this is the first time an anthology of garden writing has appeared on audio. Impeccably read by a group of professional actors, this potpourri of philosophical meanderings, passionate observations, and practical advice is essential listening for all gardeners and garden lovers. The authors include Gertrude Jekyll, Vita Sackville-West, Abby Adams, Edith Wharton, Stephen Lacey, E. B. White, Beverly Nichols, Ken Druse, Eleanor Perenyi, W. S. Merwin, Mirabel Osler, Henry Mitchell, Jamaica Kincaid, Robert Dash, Sara B. Stein, Michael Pollan, M.F.K. Fisher, Anne Raver, Patti Hagan, and Paula Deitz.

A major flaw in timing
Where does The Writer in the Garden rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
near the top EXCEPT for a major flaw - there is no pause between the chapters, in fact each seems to start before the previous one has even ended - which is extremely annoying and jarring.
What three words best describe the narrators’s performance?
all excellent readers
Any additional comments?
The readers are all wonderful and end each reading on just the right note. If just a second or two were inserted between the chapters, it would make all the difference in the world.
