Críticas:

"Bennett also provides fascinating information as to which of the author's books were written while they were in residence at a particular outdoor space, and a useful appendix supplies practical details on visiting the gardens. The icing on this sumptuous literary cake is Hanson's spectacular photographs, which will instantly transport readers to the verdant paradises so lovingly described by Bennett. VERDICT A rare treat for both ardent fans of the individual writers and armchair enthusiasts of English gardening."

(Library Journal)

'Another excellent Frances Lincoln production' (Let's Talk! Magazine)

Reseña del editor:

Great things happen in gardens. No one can doubt the importance of the garden in Roald Dahl's life as it was here where he worked, and here that he created James and the Giant Peach. And where would Jane Austen have been if she had never seen a ‘ walk’ , an ornamental lake, or a wilderness?

Gardens hold a special place in many author’ s lives. For Beatrix Potter, Hill Top house was made possible by the new found freedom and wealth that a literary career can bring; for Sir Walter Scott, laying out his garden at Abbotsford was a way of distracting himself from mounting debts.

In this book of 18 gardens and 20 writers, the author examines how the poet, writer, novelist derived a creative spirit from their private garden, how they tended and enjoyed their gardens, and how they managed their outdoor space.
