Product description

Review

'Candid, observant and often very funny' Daily Mail

'A delightful memoir - a reminder that the very best writing starts at home' Robert McCrum, Observer

Praise for ‘Sissinghurst’:

‘A masterpiece of rural romanticism, told with shameless lyricism…the vision is one of nature, art and human history in glorious coalition…uplifting.’ Sunday Times

‘Unusual, impassioned and lucidly written…a gripping but serious history of Sissinghurst Castle.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Excellent. A clear-eyed picture…beautiful.’ Guardian

‘A wonderful book.’ Financial Times

‘An expert at conveying the “stuff” of place, Nicolson is equally good with people…as Adam Nicolson understands, places tell us about the people who walked them and the dreams they pursued’ TLS

About the Author

Adam Nicolson is the author of many books on history, travel and the environment. He is winner of the Somerset Maugham Award and the British Topography Prize and lives at Sissinghust Castle in Kent. His other books include ‘Arcadia’ (‘Earls of Paradise’ in hardback), ‘Men of Honour’, ‘Sea Room’, ‘Power and Glory’ and ‘Seamanship’ and, most recently, ‘Sissinghurst’.
