Editorial Reviews

Washington Post
Wendell Berry has constructed an almost perfect fiction, a sublime meditation on how irrevocable loss is redeemed through a renewed sense of kinship with the land and the past.
NY Times Book Review
He richly evokes the region's farmland and hamlets, and his characters are fiercely individual... Mr. Berry's sentences are exquisitely constructed, suggesting the cyclic rhythms of his agrarian world.
LA Times Books Review
The rarest (and highest) of literary classes consists of that small group of authors who are absolutely inimitable....One of the half-dozen living American authors who belong in that class is Wendell Berry.
