Review
Karen Preuss Northwest Garden News : Page after page of color closeups will enchant both the casual browser and careful collector. There's a wealth of information here.
David Papayanopulos Long Island Horticultural Society Journal : As a reference book, Irises should be invaluable to horticulturalists and iris breeders, but even amateur gardeners will enjoy browsing through its pages.
Sue Tasker Professional Gardener : The close-up pictures of iris flowers would be invaluable to anyone trying to identify a particular cultivar or species, or for anyone wanting to include irises in a garden design. The book includes sections on all the main species, sections and cultivars, together with chapters on cultivation, pests and diseases, hybridising and growing from seed.

Charlie Owens is a twenty-six year old artist with a firm belief in the lessons of Greco-Roman mythology, a wayward thumb, and an eccentric perception of the world around him. In Key West, he finds love amidst the choking abundance of today's world. But blocking his path is the conformist ex-boyfriend of Charlie's girlfriend, a personality-eviscerating job, and the calamity of the advanced technology of America.
