Of Gardens records a great adventure of continual discovery not only of the artful beauty of individual gardens and landscapes but also of the intellectual and historical threads that weave them into patterns of civilization. Deitz's vivid descriptions and recollections allow readers to share in the experience of her extensive travels.

This is quite simply a wonderful book. How else can I explain it? There is just so much beauty in the writing that Deitz conjures from reading a 2D word on a 2D page into an almost 4D experience. There is a touch of personal memoir about this book in the vein of letters from... any number of locations. It has a toe in the travel writing genre while other toes dip into current affairs, but whatever it is, it is centred purely around the majesty of all the gardens she has visited. Her diction dazzles and her sentences create a sensorial feast. I never would have thought something so visual as a garden could be constructed so faithfully from words alone. I really can't do this justice. When you read it yourself, you will know what I mean...
