*****AS HEARD ON BBC RADIO 4*****

A meditative and inspiring diary of Derek Jarman's famous garden at Dungeness.

In 1986 Derek Jarman discovered he was HIV positive and decided to make a garden at his cottage on the barren coast of Dungeness.

Facing an uncertain future, he nevertheless found solace in nature, growing all manner of plants. While some perished beneath wind and sea-spray others flourished, creating brilliant, unexpected beauty in the wilderness.

Modern Nature is both a diary of the garden and a meditation by Jarman on his own life: his childhood, his time as a young gay man in the 1960s, his renowned career as an artist, writer and film-maker. It is at once a lament for a lost generation, an unabashed celebration of gay sexuality, and a devotion to all that is living.

'An essential – urgent – book for the 21st Century' Hans Ulrich Obrist

This new edition features an introduction from Olivia Laing, the author of Crudo

Review:

"The most beautiful & furious book of all time" (Olivia Laing)

"An essential – urgent – book for the 21st Century" (Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director of the Serpentine Gallery)

"A marvellous, moving book" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Jarman gave his garden a certain narrative; perhaps he treated it a bit like a film or theatre set. His films were visionary, eccentric, romantic and rebellious, all of which could also be said about his garden" (Guardian)

"It's hard not to warm to the man who, in the face of all the personal and professional hardships described in this book, can still regard himself as 'the most fortunate film-maker of my generation" (Guardian)

Book Description:

A very special book – a divine, meditative and inspiring diary of Derek Jarman's famous garden at Dungeness.
