From the Publisher:

"May 7th--There were days last winter when I danced for sheer joy out in my frost-bound garden in spite of my years and children. But I did it behind a bush, having due regard for the decencies..." Elizabeth's uniquely witty pen records each season in her beloved garden, where she escapes from the stifling routine of indoors: from servants, meals, domestic routine--and the presence of her overbearing husband. In her introduction, Elizabeth Jane Howard observes: "Elizabeth von Arnim went on to write some very good novels, but "Elizabeth and Her German Garden," its more rhapsodic passages nicely balanced by her acute and sometimes very funny perceptions about her family and friends, has a freshness, a freakish charm, an irrepressible energy that springs straight from the very source of her personality."

About the Author:

Elizabeth von Armin grew up in England. During her first marriage, to Count Henning August von Arnim-Schlagenthin, she lived in Berlin and Pomerania, where she wrote the first of twenty-one novels. They had five children, who were tutored by E. M. Forster. After her husband's death, she moved to Switzerland, where she had a brief affair with H.G. Wells before marrying Francis, second Earl Russell, brother of Bertrand Russell. On the failure of her second marriage, Elizabeth ran away to America.
