    Set in the tiny village of Orient, Long Island, and in New York City,Into the Garden with Charlesis a memoir about falling in love. As a boy in suburban New York in 1940s, Clyde Wachsberger daydreams about storybook gardens where magic happens under the huge leaves. Through the 1960s and 1970s, when most gay men disdained monogamy, the author—an artist and set-designer in New York City—searches unsuccessfully for a soul mate. In 1983, approaching middle-age and having given up on finding love, he moves to a three-hundred-year-old house on a third of an acre, where he channels his passion into creating a garden appropriate to his historical home. Then remarkable circumstances lead him to Charles—a connoisseur of art, a gardener, and the man who will become his life-partner. Together they create a garden of sensuous wild beauty.Into the Garden with Charlesis infused with the author’s artistic sensibility and is written in a voice that is unaffected, generous, and straightforward. Enriched with the author’s paintings—giving it the look and feel of an antique children’s book—Into the Garden with Charlesis a unique and moving memoir about growing old and falling in love.

    Clyde Phillip Wachsbergeris an artist, gardener, and writer living in Orient on Long Island’s North Fork. His published books includeDaffodil, Rose, Of Leaf and Flower and Stories and Poems for Gardeners, which he co-edited with his partner, Charles Dean, and for which his illustrations won the Garden Writers Association award for best book illustration.
