I almost barfed with happiness the day I read the NYTimes Book Review’s blurb about my book. I’m a fan of the reviewer–writer and editor Dominique Browning–so when she wrote: “FARM CITY: The Education of an Urban Farmer (Penguin, $25.95; available in mid-June), is easily the funniest, weirdest, most perversely provocative gardening book I’ve ever read. I couldn’t put it down,” I hit my hand on the desk and said, “no way!” My co-worker squealed when I read it aloud.
Later on in the review, Ms. Browning wasn’t as kind–she intimated that I might be a psychopath–but it’s cool (I mean, maybe she’s right). For me, a first time author, just being reviewed in the nytimes is a great honor and I am humbled and escastic and yes, a little barfy.
