My Favorite Plant: Writers and Gardeners on the Plants They Love, ed. Jamaica Kincaid, 1998

Kincaid, an avid Vermont gardener, has collected poetry by D.H. Lawrence, William Carlos Williams, Frederick Seidel, and Philip Levine as well as brief pieces by famous gardeners including Michael Pollen, Katherine White, Wayne Witterowd, and others in this fat, squat volume.  No pictures and limited utility as a source of garden ideas, but fun to read about others’ passion for their gardens and individual plant species.
