Yet again I have been hit for six by my own ignorance however charming and Emma Woodhousian it may be'Life in the Garden' is Penelope Lively’s newest book and garden memoir This sterling woman is in her 80s and is one of the most insightful supremely intelligent and straight forward examiners of everything from archaeology to literature to gardens horticulture and beyond Her writing is wise intelligent and just enough learned that my mother would describe her as ‘not overly enjoyable’ which suits my tastes just fine Life in the Garden is an examination of gardens—th
