New York SunThe late David Grene's small memoir tries to explain how, at least in the case of one exemplary life, farming and classics enhanced each other. . . . Grene reminds us of two crucial aspects of modern life exemplified by this rare individual. First is the symbiosis between the life of contemplation and action — and just how it is that hard physical and dirty work offers real value in rediscovering nature, bringing with it a certain pragmatism that permeates reading and thinking. . . .Second, Grene reminds us of what constitutes success in life.
