About this product
- DescriptionA droll meditation on the passions and isiosyncracies fo gardeners by the table dissident Czech velist and playwright Karel Capek.
- Author Biography<b>Karen Capek</b> is widely considered the greatest Czech author of the first half of the twentieth century. A novelist, short-story writer, playwright, and essayist, he was a strong dissident voice during the period of fascist buildup in Europe between the World Wars. Most famous for his play <i>R.U.R.</i>, which coined the word robot, he wrote a number of satires, as well as the utopian fantasy novel <i>War with the Newts</i>. He died in 1938. <b>Michael Pollan </b>is the author of the <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>The Botany of Desire</i> and <i>Second Nature</i>, named one of the best gardening books of the twentieth century by the American Horticultural Society. He is a contributing editor to <i>Harper s</i> magazine and a contributing writer at <i>The New York Times Magazine</i>. Pollan chose the books for the Modern Library Gardening series because, as he writes, these writers are some of the great talkers in the rich, provocative, and frequently uproarious conversation that, metaphorically at least, has been taking place over the back fence of our gardens at least since the time of Pliny.
