Roy C. Dicks.
Rhapsody in Green – The Garden Wit and Wisdom of Beverley Nichols, edited by North Carolina’s native son, Roy C. Dicks, published by Timber Press, will be released in March, 2009. I’m very excited about getting my hands on a copy. I anticipate this release because I’m a fan of both Beverley Nichols and of Roy Dicks. Roy is charming and organized! The charm plays in when Roy reads from Nichols’ work; the organization plays in when pulling together the best of a man (Nichols) who wrote with an abundance of wit and wisdom.
Roy’s passion for Beverley Nichols began simply enough with a recommendation from J.C. Raulston. After reading the first of Nichols books, Roy was hooked and has since collected all 60.
Recently at a JC Raulston Arboretum Friends Lecture, Roy read from his Rhapsody in Green manuscript. Couple Roy’s passion for the subject with his experience on stage, and you can imagine the delivery was enchanting and engaging.
