PRAISE FOR ANNA PAVORD:
'[The Tulip] is a passionate masterpiece
Mail on Sunday
'Written by a scholar, reads like a thriller'
'[The Naming of Names is a] beautifully written, gloriously illustrated history of how brilliant men from the days of Aristotle attempted to classify the world's plants. Here are enough upstagings and rivalries for 100 novels and endless fascinating facts'
