    The Writer in the Garden adds up to a glorious compendium of writing that is amusing, original, and idiosyncratic. Excerpts span not only the beauties of the garden but such far-reaching topics as weeds, the tribulations of gardening in a cold climate, the dangers of rare plant collecting, the delights of weeding, the pitfalls of growing roses, and the place of "tacky" in a garden. The book is impeccably read by a group of professional actors.

    1930 kaufte die Schriftstellerin Vita Sackville-West mit ihrem Ehemann Harold Nicolson die Ruine von Schloss Sissinghurst in Kent, um dort einen Garten zu erschaffen. Heute bewundern jährlich 160.000 Menschen ihr Lebenswerk. Wie der Garten entstand, nach welchen Gesichtspunkten Pflanzen ausgewählt und wo Beete und Rabatten angelegt wurden, wie der Garten das Portrait ihrer Ehe widerspiegelt, all dies findet man in den Tagebüchern und Briefen.
