More About the Author
A wonderful book ... generous with excitement and adventures and love. Reading it, I felt glad to be alive (Xandra Bingley, author of Bertie, May and Mrs Fish)
Quirky, touching, wayward, sensuous ... An unforgettable journey of the senses. Irresistible (Sir Roy Strong)
Her book everywhere celebrates happiness, amounting to a litany of sensuous joys: lists and speculations, observations and memories, much for her great grand children, but also for us, and then for Mirabel herself. It is full of darting wit and wry quirky wisdom... a prose often casually gorgeous and is absolutely unlike anyone else. She is a rebel and a rule breaker, always her own person. You can detect none of the usual professional garden-writer's know all smartness in her evocations of what is it like to create a garden. She is refreshingly witty about her ignorance and mistakes, eloquent about failure (Independent)
A beautifully written memoir from the bestselling author of A Gentle Plea for ChaosSee all Product Description

I thoroughly enjoyed Mirabel Osler's A Spoon with Every Course. This is very different but has the same elegance and openness of style and charm. You can almost her her voice. So I began with the "present" but I go back now to the beginning and Ford Madox Ford and Stella Bowen and her family life. Can't wait.
I am loving it. I think most readers will and I urge you to try it.
