More a collection of essays than a real gardening memoir, 'Adam's Profession' mostly concerns Julian Meade's garden in Southwestern Virginia. He pokes fun frequently at touring garden speakers and a haughty neighbor. He also peppers his witty essays with good gardening tips. I especially enjoyed this book because I live near where he wrote. I would also say that his writing, although not grossly racist, was very much a product of his time and culture so may be offensive, although he does snipe at others he would seem to have considered racist.
I think his books are reminiscent of those by Beverely Nichols (although I find those books more charming).
Julian Meade also wrote 'Bouquets and Bitters'.
