Recensioner i media

"An exquisite storyteller who works in and lives among the gardens, Baraton immediately engages readers...Baraton has filled his book not only with interesting historical details and human stories of the royals who walked the grounds but with insightful, contemporary tales of wise coworkers and eccentric visitors. Whether he's discussing romantic tourists or marveling at bygone gardening techniques, Baraton's eloquence and intelligence shine in this English translation by Murray. Practically required reading for garden travelers, gardeners, history fans, and even memoir buffs. Readers will wish more of his books were available in translation. Delightful." "Library Journal", Starred Review "[A] fascinating memoir...[A]n intimate and visceral look into his complicated relationship with one of Europe's most astonishing public gardens...It is a telling glimpse of the challenge, consolation, and occasional horror of overseeing a place of magic." "Publishers Weekly" "Simply but thoroughly, the author narrates the history of Versailles...He writes poetically about the beautiful power of the grounds he tends. The descriptions of the various sites on the grounds could only come from a man fortunate enough to have lived on and loved the site for almost 40 years." "Kirkus Reviews"
