Overview

Furthering his series on the Port William Membership, Three Short Novels brings together some of Wendell Berry's best-loved short fiction—Nathan Coulter, Remembering, and A World Lost.

This collection restores to print three old favorites, newly revised by the author and never before gathered in one volume. Three Short Novels will be followed shortly by The Collected Stories, which will complete the Port William cycle in its definitive, uniform edition.

Author Biography: An essayist, novelist, and poet, Wendell Berry is the author of more than thirty books. Among the many honors he has received for his work are a Guggenheim Fellowship, the T. S. Eliot Award, and a Lannan Foundation Award for nonfiction. He lives and farms in his native Kentucky with his wife, Tanya Berry, and their children and grandchildren.

Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
The Coulter family, like the rest of the people who dwell in this tiny farming community…are caught on the wheel of nature, which is at once blindingly beautiful and unwittingly cruel.… The narrative is stunning, the natural scene is beautifully evoked.
Washington Post
In Remembering 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.… A beautiful and ennobling book.
Atlantic Monthly
[In A World Lost] Mr. Berry writes elegantly, effortlessly balancing tragedy and a quiet, sly humor.
