THE ALPINE Garden Society, which has more members than any other specialist horticultural society in Britain, has published a handbook on saxifrages, of which more than 600 kinds are available in this country. What the kindergarten alpine gardener needs is a clear indication of the varieties most likely to succeed. The AGS calls the book A Gardener's Guide to the Genus, but this information is not clearly signposted.

BOOK REVIEW / Martyr to marriage: La femme de Gilles - Madeleine Bourdouxhe trs Faith Evans: Lime Tree, pounds 7.99
Sunday 03 January 1993
IN The Second Sex Simone de Beauvoir praised La Femme de Gilles for its clarity of vision and for its tender portrayal of male and female sexuality. It has taken over half a century for this haunting slim novel to appear in English (though the title is untranslated for reasons of ironic double entendre), so hats off to Faith Evans for retrieving the work of Madeleine Bourdouxhe - now 87 and living in Brussels - and for such an elegant English rendering.

WHEN he, A, first sees the woman of his dreams, B, she is 'enthroned' - on a Nautilus machine. But her regal pose does not stop the manager evicting her from the gym.

THE first couple of weeks you just thought it would improve. Here was one of our most appealing comedians delivering scripts written by the funniest man on British television.

Racing: President poised to lift Cole's campaign: Paul Hayward on a colt whose talent can contribute to his trainer's title chance
Friday 11 September 1992
PAUL COLE's chances of retaining his title of champion trainer look thin when you consider he is pounds 750,000 behind Richard Hannon in the prize-money table. They look a good deal better when you study the team of two-year-olds Cole has honed for autumn's largest targets.
