The Garden Of Reading (Paperback)

£8.99

Synopsis

With selections grown from the fertile imaginations of the twentieth century's most remarkable authors, editor and writer Michele Slung has assembled an evocative anthology of short stories about gardens and all that grow in them. The gardeners here are young and old, male and female, and the gardens themselves are a delightful mix of the formal and the wild. The twenty-four stories told in The Garden of Reading comprise a diverse and unexpected collection, but one that stays true to its theme. Included are Colette's sensuous 'Grape Harvest,' David Guterson's poignant 'The Flower Garden,' J.G. Ballard's otherworldy 'The Garden of Time,' and Stephen King's sinister 'The Lawnmower Man' - as well as classics from Saki and Robert Graves. If you've ever nurtured a flower, a tomato plant, or a gleam of imagination, then there's something in The Garden of Reading that is sure to delight.
