Berry opens this latest installment of the Port William series with young Andy Catlett preparing to visit a place he’d been to many times before, though this would be an adventure he will take very seriously. Nine years old, Andy embarks on the trip by bus, alone for the first time. He decides it will be a rite of passage and his first step into manhood. Sometimes a handful at home, Andy was a good boy when visiting his Grandparents’ houses, and he looked forward to the little spoiling certain to come his way. A beautiful short novel, this book is a perfect introduction into the whole world of Port William and will be as well a new chapter for those already familiar with this rich unfolding story.

About the Author:

Berrys themes are reflections of his life: friends, family, the farm, the nature around us as well as within. He speaks strongly for himself and sometimes for the lost heart of the country. As he has borne witness to the world for eight decades, what he offers us now in this new collection of poems is of incomparable value.

From AudioFile:

For fifty years, Wendell Berry has created stories of life in the fictional town of Port William, Kentucky and shared them with readers. Although fictional, we recognize the characters . . .as real our own ancestors. This memoir-like tale gives us a view of that point in time when we slid from an agrarian to an industrialized society. After Christmas 1943, 9-year-old Andy Catlett makes his first solo visit to Port William. Paul Michael, as an elderly Andy, reflects on that memorable visit to his paternal grandparents, farmers, and his maternal ones, who lived in town. Speaking in a voice full of down-home wisdom, Michael creates an atmosphere in which we can imagine sitting in the company of our own grandpa, soaking up his history, which, by extension, is our own.
