Wendell Berry's continued fascination with the power of memory continues in this treasured novel set in 1976. Andy Catlett, a farmer whose hand was lost in an accident only eight months prior, wanders the streets of San Francisco. As his perspective filters through his anger over his loss and the harsh city that surrounds him, Andy begins to remember: the people and places that wait 2,000 miles away in his Kentucky home, the comfort he knew as a farmer, and his symbiotic relationship to the soil. Andy laments the modern shift away from the love of the land, even as he begins to accept his own changed relationship to the world.

About the Author:

A native Kentuckian, Wendell Berry lived and taught in New York and California before returning permanently to the Kentucky River region, where he farms on 125 acres in Henry County.

From AudioFile:

Wendell Berry's Port William series, set in rural Kentucky, involves the Coulter family and the farming community in which they live. The simplicity of young Nathan Coulter's coming-of-age story, which takes place upon the death of his grandfather, is compelling. Paul Michael's narration authentically captures Nathan's sense of obligation, community, and love of the land. The story portrays profound changes--specifically, the development of agribusiness, which transforms farming and gives birth to moral questions. Michael's rich characterizations of "Old Jack" Beechum's struggles with his wife and town barber Jayber Crow's secret of unrequited love are especially believable. Michael's well-timed delivery enhances Berry's lyrical writing, but instances of animal cruelty and an abrupt ending detract from the story. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine

Book Description Counterpoint May 2008, 2008. Paper Back. Book Condition: New. The book is aptly titled, calling deeply on memory, on longing for memory of a place close to the ground. Wendell Berry, renowned agrarian author and essayist, once again reminds the reader of kinship, of soil and dust and hard earned character. His language is poetic but far from romantic, one moment biting like Flannery O'Conner, the next poignant like Annie Dillard. The members of his cast are certainly human, but more, they are iconographic, they are a warning and a response to previous warnings 'Spare us, O Lord, the logical consequences of our folly.' Our protagonist, Andy Catlett, (formerly written of in Berry's well loved series surrounding Port William) and here found alone in San Francisco as an agricultural journalist invited to an academic conference, is often found 'remembering' on behalf of others. Berry does much the same for his readers, remembering where our own recollections have failed, recalling on our behalf the generations before us, and the people around us, who have their feet well embedded in soil and neighbor and unflinching quality. Remembering is 'not an argument about right and wrong ways of farming,' it is 'the history of souls,' and an aching representation of the present in which we all live and hope and fail, and hope again. This is a story of work and of rest for both body and intellect, it is the long furrow of responsibility tilled and planted with poetry and mettle. 103 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 91258
