    Hamner delights us again

    In his introduction to Generous Women, Earl Hamner quotes from one of his favorite books, Thomas Wolfe¿s Look Homeward Angel. He says ¿¿it prompted me to count some of the influences on my life and how they led me to become the man I am today.¿ In his latest book, Hamner counts those influences in the form of short vignettes, some poignant, some funny, and some surprising, about the women he has known throughout his life. For Hamner fans, the joy of reading his books is that, with each one, we learn a little more about him. In Generous Women we glean more about his college and army days, and his early career, in the context of the helpful and giving women he encounters at each stage. As his biographer, Jim Person, says in Earl Hamner: From Walton¿s Mountain to Tomorrow, ¿¿there are pervasive themes that run throughout Hamner¿s work, which shows a man forever taking a backward glance to his roots for direction in the way of what makes life worthwhile, [and] who allows that vision to direct his steps forward¿¿ Generous Women is a beautiful read and a genuine tribute to a wide assemblage of women who have offered Hamner important gifts at impressionable moments. Would that more of us had Hamner¿s open-hearted capacity to overlook the negative and to offer similar expressions of gratitude for the positive interactions in our lives. I¿m hoping a companion book, Generous Men, is to follow.
