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:

Andy Catlett's right hand has been cut off by a corn-picking machine. "Detached" might be a better description since the accident sends Andy into a state of general detachment and malaise. He travels to San Francisco to speak at a meeting of agricultural experts and as he roams the city streets at night, his missing hand becomes a portal into all things missing--love, descendants, and even the family farms that are being replaced by agribusiness. (The book is set in 1976.) There's a spirituality hovering over the proceedings and, like Andy's missing hand, it permeates everything without making itself seen. The audiobook's power has a lot to do with Michael Kramer's narration. Kramer reads as if he were painting, applying sentences like minimalist brush strokes. The result is a meditative, hypnotizing audiobook. R.W.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
