Sebastian  Lehmann - I Thought It Would Be Greener


An amusing tale of survival and discovery in a small rural garden

Woken yet again by the constant construction noise and general big-city din of Berlin, Sebastian Lehmann has had enough. Longing for peace and beauty, he and his girlfriend head out to search their very own garden, and end up in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The yearned-for relaxation, however, has to wait for now: the snails are sabotaging the lettuce beds, ground elder is spreading everywhere, and the roof of the cabin is rotting. And then there are so many questions, such as: do we need a fence? How do you construct a raised bed? Is a ribbed vest the gardener's equivalent of the little black dress? In his latest and funniest book, slam-poet Sebastian Lehmann tells us about his first year as a gardener, how to fell a tree with two left hands, and why he doesn't regret his decision to acquire his very own garden. Hugely witty, and a little gnarled.
