Becoming a gardener : what reading and digging taught me about living / Catie Marron ; illustrations by All the Way to Paris ; photographs by William Abranowicz.

Marron, Catie, (author.). Abranowicz, William, (photographer.). All The Way To Paris, (illustrator.).


"Filled with specially commissioned color photography, watercolors, and fine art, Becoming a Gardener is a beautifully designed first-hand account of what it means to become a gardener. Catie Marron details her experience over eighteen months, documenting her studies, her triumphs, her mistakes, and everything in between while infusing it with the rich advice of a variety of writers over the years-everyone from Eleanor Peraenyi and Karel Capek to Penelope Lively and Jamaica Kincaid. As she digs deeper into her readings and works in the garden itself, she not only discovers the essence of gardening but in the words of Michael Pollan, "the endlessly engrossing ways that cultivating a garden attaches a body to the earth.""-- Provided by publisher.
