"This very entertaining volume with its delightfully humorous pictures should be read by all gardeners." Nature. An internationally renowned Czech author presents a richly comic portrait of a year in the life of an amateur horticulturist. Rather than a how-to book, Karel apek's volume offers a lighthearted mock-treatise on the pains and rewards of tending a small and resistant garden plot that will amuse readers with and without green thumbs.

Review:

'...The Gardener's Year, excellently translated by Geoffrey Newsome, is a work of great charm and considerable subtlety...' Miranda Seymour, The Literary Review, September 2003 --Sanford Lakoff "Literary Review "

About the Author:

Czech writer Karel apek (1890 1938) is best known as the author of R.U.R., the play that coined the term "robot" and a seminal work of science fiction. Ardently opposed to fascism and communism, apek was an active journalist as well as a versatile writer whose works encompassed novels, modern fairy tales, detective stories, and translations of French poetry.
Poet and painter Josef apek (1887 1945) frequently collaborated with his brother Karel in the writing of plays and short stories. Upon Germany's 1939 invasion of Czechoslovakia, his outspoken opposition to Nazism led to his arrest and imprisonment, and he died within days of the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
