About this title

Synopsis:

Through these essays emerges a portrait of a mother, scholar, fly fisher, and gardener living each role with furious passion.

From the Back Cover:

The Night Gardener is more than a memoir; it is a quest. Literature, music, the art of storytelling, fly fishing, gardening as an expression of our deepest selves, the nature of memory, and the desire to story our own lives are its subject. Ultimately, transcendence through storytelling is the secret strength at the heart of Sandor's life, work, and play.These twenty essays form a startlingly honest and passionate narrative that strikes a mesmerizing balance between the domains of the domestic and the creative.Sandor is bold and heretical, witty and learned. From fishing in an alligator-infested lake and hiking through grizzly territory to seeking a way to ease her young daughter's pain after separating from her husband, she explores wildness and solace in both the outdoors and the mind.Each essay is dramatic and beautifully formed - full of wit and the author's insatiably curious mind. She brings to these works the electricity and thrilling imagination that ignite her highly acclaimed fiction. And through these essays emerges a portrait of a mother, scholar, fly fisher, and gardener living each role with furious passion. She also is a writer of glorious talent, able to wield this last with the control and virtuosity of the true artist. (53/4 X 81/2, X 212 pages)
