Overview

"Young Nathan, in Nathan Coulter, struggles to grow up and understand the value of land and family. With the death of his grandfather, Nathan sees that "his life couldn't be divided from the days he'd spent at work in his fields." In Remembering, it is 1976 and Andy Catlett is alone in San Francisco, walking the streets at dawn. In the eight months since losing his right hand to a corn-picking machine, he has also lost himself and his sense of place. Two thousand miles from home, he begins to remember - people, places, the comfort of knowing land intimately." A World Lost opens in the summer of 1944 when nine-year-old Andy is engrossed in the cool water of Chatham Spring and fields full of tumblebugs and meadowlarks. But calamity strikes Andy's world on a hot July afternoon when his Uncle Andrew is murdered.

Editorial Reviews

Atlantic Monthly
[In A World Lost] Mr. Berry writes elegantly, effortlessly balancing tragedy and a quiet, sly humor.
Atlantic Monthly

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.

The family are caught on the wheel of nature, which is at once blindingly beautiful and unwittingly cruel...The narrative is stunning, the natural scene 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.
