ny times on my book: ‘sensitive, wise, deliberate, thoughtful and splendidly bossy’
NAILED! Yes, reviewer Dominique Browning, writing in the special summer reading section in Sunday’s New York Times Book Review, offers high praise for my new-old book “A Way to Garden” and to my delight calls me “splendidly bossy.”
Little did she know that Grandpa Roach called me “Marge the Boss” starting when I was about 5, owing to my take-charge inclinations, apparently. (Don’t get my younger sister started on this subject.) Browning also calls me “a natural teacher,” which especially delights me, and recommends the book for both “longtime tillers” and “new gardeners,” which was what I aimed for in choosing what to include, and how to write about it.
Read her review for yourself. (Share it!)
