Wicked Plants: The Reviews Are Coming In

Posted by on April 26, 2009 in Media/Reviews | 2 comments

"Deliciously eerie…entertaining, informative — and a little unsettling."
– LA Times

"Nibble at your peril…after reading Wicked Plants, you'll probably – if briefly – look at
every inhabitant of your garden with caution…We have new respect for the awesome, often-hidden
and sometimes-deadly powers of the botanical world."
–Philadelphia Inquirer

"Be careful: Stewart's book can be as addictive as the betel nut–but it won't turn your teeth black."
–ForeWord

"It's not really about the plants. It's about us. And that's why Stewart's references to
"vegetable wickedness," the "devious" coyotillo berry, and "bad boy" hemlock are so amusing and
effective… Is Amy Stewart a garden writer or a talented literary journalist who's chosen to
write about the botanical world? The answer to that really doesn't matter, as long as she
continues to produce books as interesting and entertaining as this one."
–Buffalo Spree

More reviews here as they come in.  And here's a nice write-up in the Eureka Times-Standard about our book launch party at Eureka Books next weekend.
