Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I must confess to having never read any of Ms. Kincaid's earlier work, but having enjoyed this book as much as I did, I will certainly seek out her other writings.
This book is an open, descriptive peek into the pleasures and peeves of gardening, and into Ms. Kincaid's own idiosyncratic - alternately heartwarming and annoying - view of herself, her family, her friends and acquaintances, and history. It takes the "garden as metaphor for life" theme into entirely new and thought-provoking directions.
Her style (writing as the novice Kincaid reader that I am) was unusual - very conversational, sometimes rambling and disjointed - and took some getting used to. But once I got into the essays, I found it entirely engaging. She delivers an honest appraisal of her strengths and her weaknesses, as a gardener and as a person. Her enemies (insect, animal and human) became my enemies, her heroes became my heroes (I've registered for a symposium featuring Dan of Heronswood Gardens already!), and her ideas never failed to generate my own questions and (sometimes) answers.
I highly recommend this book, as an adjunct to the winter plant catalogues and "how-to" books into which we addicted gardeners usually immerse ourselves during the "off" season. No great font of gardening information (by her own admission, she usually breaks the mold, if not the rules), it will not fail to inspire your own efforts come spring.

As a beginning gardener, Jamaica Kincaid's book looked intriguing...but I had no idea I'd be shaking with laughter on my transatlantic plane flight (apologies to my seat mate). This is an incredibly well-written musing on gardening, life and a life of gardening. It's one I'll pull out in the dead of winter for a fresh breath of spring and sense of humor. Don't be fooled by bad reviews...this is a wonderful little book.

I've read some of Ms Kincaid's short stories and enjoyed them, and I love gardening books, especially essays. I bought this book thinking "How can I miss!" Unfortunately, in spite of the pretty cover, I did not find the book particularly interesting or appealing. Ms. Kincaid simply does not know enough about the subject to write about it. She is no Allen Lacy, Henry Mitchell, Adrianne Higgins, Diane Raver, or Elizabeth Lawrence. Don't fall into the trap I did of assuming because she can write well, she can write about gardening. If I had seen the book in the book store, I would have known it was "fluff" by flipping through a few pages.
I've read other books that were equally useless and dull, and I suppose I held Ms. Kincaid to a higher standard since she writes so well. My advice to her would be to follow the rule of good writing, stick to what you know.

Von Ein Kunde am 13. Juni 2000
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Don't be fooled by this title. This is not a garden book but rather a book about self induldgence and showing off the knowledge of Latin names for plants and trees. Anybody who complains about a nest of young robins chirping at 5:30 in the morning (I should be so fortunate to have such an alarm clock), who nearly drowns a raccoon in a Have A Heart trap, and fantasizes about snapping the necks of bunnies in her yard should not live in Vermont nevermind claim to be a gardener. Ms. Kincaid loves her garden in full bloom and color as we all do but with her ( ) eye for beauty, fails to see it in her garden the rest of the year. If you want to read a satisfying garden book, I suggest the following; "Onward and Upward in the Garden" by Kathrine S. White, "Thoreau's Garden" by Peter Loewer or "Faith in a Seed" by Thoreau himself. Or better yet, read a seed catalogue, the writing will be better and you'll get the Latin names to boot with out the pretentiousness. But if you insist on reading "My Garden (Book)", wait a few weeks. It will be in the bargain bin soon enough. After reading Ms. Kincaid's book, I would never read anything by her again.

I first picked up Kincaid's 'At the bottom of the river' last August. I just returned to homeland after 5 years away, saw the book on the floor of a bookshop, picked it up and ended up bringing it home. Since then, I have read all of her books.
This novel continues to do great justice to its predecessors. Illuminating, alive and vivid.
This is not a book about only gardening, but about everything. Poignant, funny, opinionated. It is a book that entertains and informs, in between the discussion of gardens and people with gardens.
