Editorial Reviews

Review

A fascinating read about a writer/gardener you will love to hate. -- Marianne Binetti Seattle Post-Intelligencer 20061127

From the Publisher

With a new foreword by Roy Dicks and Val Biro's charming drawings, the Timber Press edition of Down the Kitchen Sink deservedly takes its place among Beverly Nichols classics on gardens, homes, cats, and other friends.

I am a great fan of Beverly Nichols, so I am always excited to see one of his books reprinted. I enjoyed this look into an era long gone. His gardening books gave you a glimpse of Gaskin but this book presented a picture of the real person, not just the perfect servant. I like Nichols' wry humour and every cat lover will feel they have met a kindred spirit.

If you've enjoyed other books by Beverley Nichols or those by P.G. Wodehouse, this is a book for you. The charming recipes and antedotes make for a delightful reading experience. This book is worth the cost for the Mayonnaisse chapter alone!

Format: Hardcover
I have enjoyed reading most of Beverley Nichol's books on his houses and his gardening. I had high hopes for this one but came away disappointed.
This is close to his last book and maybe he was old and tired and bitter. He was too sarcastic and he even related a dirty joke that was not in the least bit funny. Not enough about his cats, either. The recipes were interesting but not practical for most people. Fans of Mr. Nichol's should read it but don't expect too much.

If Nichols hadn't been dead and gay, I would have been on the next plane!!! He is simply wonderful because he had full command of the English language; he could criticize without judgment; he loved life and animals; he possessed both energy and humor; he was generous; he was capable of respect; he was a gentleman in both senses. I love all his books, but this is my favorite. It's, to me, obvious, but I should say he would be the first to agree he was human and, therefore, not without faults. I would love to have known this man.

With regard to the person who sold me the book, the copies arrived in short order and in perfect, "as new", condition. Absolute A++

Thank you.
