What Martha Stewart is reading

The decor diva is currently enjoying ”The Country Garden” and ”Strange Pilgrims”, amongst other books

Posted on

I’m looking at my bedside table—I always read in bed, I’m a famous insomniac—and there are two gardening books: The Country Garden, by Josephine Nuese, and 40 Years of Gardening, by Anna Gilman Hill. Lindon Miller, a famous landscape artist, told me about them, and I got them through a rare-book dealer. They’re both out of print. I’m also reading very good stories-Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Strange Pilgrims. I also have Cynthia Moses’ Elephant Memories, a beautiful book. I’ve also got Anne Rice’s The Witching Hour sitting here, which I’ve been meaning to start but never do. I really love beautiful fiction and nonfiction.
