As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
It's hard to believe that this book was published on this day already a year ago in 2019.
This book won the Pulitzer Prize in fiction. It's a New York Times bestseller.
The author Ann Patchett said, "The best novel ever written about trees, and really just one of the best novels, period."
The book is 512 pages of stories or more precisely fables - all told with trees in mind. This is Richard's 12th novel, and in it, we learn about trees and their world - that is just as big as ours - just as interconnected and creative and responsive and powerful. Yet many of us are oblivious to trees and what they have to tell us about the world we share together.
