Fundamentals of Plant Diversity
At a garden party for the students at an agricultural university, she falls wildly and suddenly in love. Peter from Liverpool has disheveled hair and a leather jacket, and it’s impossible not to think about him. She studies botany and tells Peter everything she knows about plants, about moss and lichen and parasitic hyphae growing on the roots of certain trees.
Fundamentals of Plant Diversity is a novel about everything that grows, about a love that overshadows everything else and about how difficult it is to find the right words.
