A magical flower that stops time, an orchid that has a rather strange effect on the people that take care of it, a creature that does more with a lawnmower than cut grass, a love affair begun and ended in a garden, and much more. With selections grown form the fertile imaginations of some of the most remarkable contemporary authors, editor and writer Michele Slung has assembled an enchanting and evocative anthology about gardens and all that grow in them.
Whether you've nurtured a solitary houseplant on a windowsill, acres of glorious blooming flowerbeds, or simply a bright gleam of imagination, The Garden of Reading will remind you of the brilliance and wonder of the world around us.
