What a way to celebrate your 100th birthday. Noted poet Kunitz discusses his second love, the joys of gardening, in conversations transcribed by literary assistant Lentine. As Kunitz once observed in "The Snakes of September," "At my touch the wild/ braid of creation/ trembles." Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
"A miracle." -- Galway Kinnell "No one who has ever gardened passionately will be a stranger to the sentiments Kunitz expresses about this act of domestic creation, but very few of us will ever come close to writing about it with his grace and clarity. This is indeed a book to cherish." -- Kate Tyndall - Raleigh News & Observer
