9781582434155: Remembering: A Novel (Port William)

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
