Nichols is generally thought of as a garden writer, but his descriptions of renovating his Georgian manor house are equally wonderful. He has a dry, acerbic wit, but one that is overlain with a rich and emotional sensuality. Nichols captures what it means to love and rescue a house. You’ll laugh so hard that I defy you not to read the two other books in this trilogy.
