Book of the Week. Alice Vincent suspected that the histories of women who gardened had been buried, and she set out to dig them up. As she was doing so, she met some interesting people (including Ali Smith and Cosey Fanni Tutti) and began to speculate on a relationship between women and the soil, a relationship that sometimes pushes other relationships into the background. Vincent 's book, Why Women Grow: Stories of soil, sisterhood and survival, is beautifully presented and a joy to read.
