“The Man Who Loved Plants”
Fans of Edgar’s work will be interested to know that Edgar is the author of a novel titled The Man Who Loved Plants.
“This is not the city as it was but the city as it was seen by him, a wanderer who did not wander there but rather through a landscape sprung from his own desire. He was held in the contemplation of lowly things — discarded, disused objects — that rust running along the fence, running, forever running to the strength of its own current — the settling foundations of houses tortured away by time from their true shapes — the cool dirt creeping from under the sidewalk, weeds undermining with their roots, cracking the stone skein of the city. He loved such things.”
