9781582431246: A Place on Earth: A Novel

The rhythms of this novel are the rhythms of the land. A Place on Earth resonates with variations played on themes of change; looping transitions from war into peace, winter into spring, browning flood destruction into greening fields, absence into presence, lost into found. This brings the revised 1983 edition back into print, the next book in our program to put all of Wendell Berry's fiction into print in revised and corrected uniform editions.

About the Author:

An essayist, novelist, and poet, Wendell Berry is the author of more than thirty books. He lives and farms in his native Kentucky with his wife, Tanya Berry.

From AudioFile:

The titular place on earth is the rural community of Port William, Kentucky, where family sticks together and neighbors lend a hand. Paul Michael gives voice to BerryÕs beautiful prose, carrying the listener through lifeÕs cycle of birth and death as complicated by the events of WWII. Central is MattÕs struggle to cope with his son, VirgilÕs, status as missing in action, a piece of news that arrives shortly before VirgilÕs daughterÕs birth. Ultimately, MattÕs sense of place brings him serenity. MichaelÕs subtle characterizations offer emotion and levity in just the right doses. He applies sweet Southern accents just as easily as he tosses out amusing colloquialisms. DonÕt miss his depiction of Port WilliamÕs celebration of the end of the war.
