May Sarton's celebrations in this book center around the friendships that flowered in her life from age twenty-six to age forty-five-between the end of I Knew a Phoenix and the beginning of Plant Dreaming Deep. Her subjects include her father, the noted science historian George Sarton; people in the arts-Elizabeth Bowen, Louise Brogan, Jean Dominique; and people who lived lives remote from the center-Marc, the vigneron of Satigny, in the foothills of the Jura mountains, and Quig, the painter of Nelson, New Hampshire.

Industry Reviews

Buy this book and enjoy one by one and at leisure Sarton's sensual evocations of person and place, lit by occasional tantalizing flashes of the author herself, in and out of love, up and down the world from Belgium to Maine. "
