Modern Nature: the journals of Derek Jarman,
This review is from: Modern Nature: The Journals of Derek Jarman (Paperback)
I bought this book as I wanted to know more about the process of his garden making and how he lived with it and how he regarded the landscape around him.
I was not disappointed. This book is fantastic and rivals many fine garden writings, as well as being deeply moving regarding his attachment to the place and the necessary trips to hospital that he made due to his ailing health.
I loved it and could not put it down.
Like when I read 'The Garden', I felt I wished I'd known more of him, and I reveled in the acuity and clarity of his observations.
This is a classic.
