"Based on this description of Jamaica Kincaid's gardening life, we can imagine the Antigua-born writer at home in Vermont, hands on her hips, scowling at Asiatic lilies, which she hates. In these strong opinions she resembles that British mother of garden writing, Gertrude Jeckyll. In her fascination with seeds and varieties and her cabin-fever musings during the winter months on what to plant, she resembles Jeckyll's American counterpart, Katherine White. But Kincaid's inspirations, motivations and disappointments in the garden are entirely her own."Kincaid, Jamaica is the author of 'My Garden (Book)', published 2001 under ISBN 9780374527761 and ISBN 0374527768.
