About the Author:
An essayist, novelist, poet, and farmer, Wendell Berry is the author of more than thirty books including Citizens Dissent, Life is a Miracle, and Jayber Crow. He is a past recipient of the T.S. Eliot Award, The Orion Society's John Hay Award, the Lyndhurst Prize, and the Aiken-Taylor Award for Poetry from The Sewanee review. He lives and works with his wife Tanya on their farm in Kentucky.
Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
The time will soon come when we will not be able to remember the horrors of September 11 without remembering also the unquestioning technological and economic optimism that ended on that day.
–Thoughts in the Presence of Fear

A change of heart or of values without a practice is only another pointless luxury of a passively consumptive way of life.
–The Idea of a Local Economy

One way we could describe the task ahead is by saying that we need to enlarge the consciousness and the conscience of the economy....This is revolutionary, of course, if you have a taste for revolution, but it is also common sense.
–In Distrust of Movements
