My City Highrise Garden by Susan Brownmiller

Susan Brownmiller has a new book which is coming out on March 31: My City Highrise Garden. Susan is a friend who lives in a pretty fabulous apartment not far from me. It’s the envy of everyone who has visited. From the Library Journal: “In this charming collection of essays, feminist journalist, activist, and author Brownmiller writes with passion, humor, and complete candidness about 35 years of gardening on the 20th-floor terrace of her Greenwich Village apartment … Memoir lovers and gardeners alike will enjoy these adventures in urban gardening.”

I’m a new fan of gardening books, and I love the idea of reading about a garden so close to me. Susan is probably most known for her book Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape. But her other books include, Seeing Vietnam, In Our Time: Memoir of a Revolution, and Waverly Place.

  1. I’ve heard of Brownmiller but didn’t know she had written anything on Vietnam. I’ll be looking for the book now, thanks for the reference!
