That we might never meet again by Phil Robinson( Book )
7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 114 libraries worldwide
Set in an isolated community, Philip Robinson's debut novel opens with the arrival of Michael, an artist, who has been commissioned to paint a portrait of Lord Palmer, owner of the remote estate of Inchamactaire - the island of the wolf. Escape from London and its attendant distractions should have proved just the tonic to repair Michael's wounded relationship with his wife, Lucia; but with the arrival of the community's head gardner, things don't go quite according to plan. As events take on an increasingly menacing nature, Michael's relationship with Lord Palmer's daughter, Magda, threatens to disturb the strange but delicate balance between the residents of the estate and the nature around them
The Faber book of gardens by Phil Robinson( Book )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 83 libraries worldwide
"Gardening is both the most democratic of the arts and the most elitist. Gardens are strange confections of human desire and vegetable life - highly managed, yet remaining subject to forces more powerful than human agency. They can range from a utilitarian allotment for the production of food, to physical expressions of the metaphysical." "Philip Robinson presents here a reading of gardens that spans centuries and cultures. He is as interested in the small, private plot as he is in the grand aristocratic and imperial gardens - from medieval Japan to suburban Arizona. The motivations for gardens fascinate him, and his choices here are informed by the belief that the gardens we create reveal more about ourselves than we would ever otherwise admit."--BOOK JACKET
