French Dirt: The Story of a Garden in the South of France

Escaping the sound and fury of New York, Richard moved to a small village in Provence, near Avignon. There he found a tiny plot of streamside land and set about raising a vegetable garden that eventually connected him to his village and to the villagers in ways he never would have dreamed.

For thirty-five years, New York City was home for Richard Goodman. A New York Memoir reflects those years--the lessons learned, the friendships made, the love found and lost, the words written. Throughout it all, there is a deep, abiding gratitude to this incomparable city coursing through this book.
