About Author: C.B. Anderson

C.B. Anderson is the longtime gardener for the PBS television series, The Victory Garden. Translation: He’s got dirt under his fingernails. In the summer of 2003 he read a poem by Don Paterson (“A Gift”) that drove him into the fine old tradition to which his neighbors reckon him a virtual slave—and he was only 54. He lives in eastern Massachusetts with his wife and two kids, who don’t know who he is anymore, and never will until they try to get published.
