In My Own Words:
I did an MA in English literature a couple of years ago and absolutely loved reading everything from Beowulf and Sir Gawain to Milan Kundera, Haruki Murakami, Gustave Flaubert, Julian Barnes and John Fowles.

Each season section begins with an introduction inset, which provides information about the vegetables and the best ways to grow them in your garden.
