Description - Philosophy In The Garden by Damon Young

In Philosophy in the Garden, Damon Young explores one of literature's most intimate relationships- authors and their gardens. For some, the garden provided a retreat from workaday labour; for others, solitude's quiet counsel. For all, it played a philosophical role- giving their ideas a new life.

Philosophy in the Garden 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.
