An amusing and thought-provoking compendium of columns, articles, essays and reviewsÂ from this acute, knowledgeable and irreverent commentator.
In a career that has ranged from Country Life to Wallpaper* ? spanning the full range between the two, and latterly including the Daily Telegraph and the New York Times ? Tim Richardson has gone, both intellectually and geographically, where few other garden writers dare to tread. There are no articles here aboutÂ the best ways to grow sweet peas or potatoes:Â TimÂ is more likely to venture into the realmsÂ of art, philosophy orÂ politics.Â
This collection contains articles which have influenced the way we think about gardens ? as well as one or twoÂ which proved too hot to handle and resulted in his being fired as a columnist.
