Gardening without Gloves by Roger Ladd Memmott


Gardening without Gloves by Roger Ladd Memmott

A Gemstone Book (Trade Paperback) - 194 pages *** What comes of Gardening without Gloves? Read each of the twelve stories in this volume to find answers that you wouldn't expect. On one level Memmott's book is an excursion into the psychology of love, while on another level it voices the despair of love and relationships misunderstood. One story shows this weathered visage and another one that. The characters, in their own dangerous and diametrical ways, are overcome by the elusive, and sometimes disillusioning, expectations of love. Flawed by misapprehension, they are often left bereaved, puzzling only the ambiguities of love, or what they thought was love, and how it slipped away. *** Excellent...storytelling executed with taste and style. - Writer's Digest
