Why did Marcel Proust have bonsai beside his bed? What was Jane Austen doing, coveting an apricot? How was Friedrich Nietzsche inspired by his 'thought tree'? Damon Young reveals one of literature's most intimate relationships: authors and their gardens. For some, the garden provided a retreat from their labours; for others, solitude's quiet counsel. For all, it played a philosophical role: giving their ideas a new life. This book reveals the profound thoughts discovered in parks, backyards and pot plants. It does not provide tips for mowing overgrown cooch grass or mulching a dry Japanese maple. It is a philosophical companion to the garden's labours and joys.
