Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Wendell Berry

“Wherever we live, however we do so, we desperately need a prophet of responsibility; and although the days of the prophets seem past to many of us, Berry may be the closest to one we have. But, fortunately, he is also a poet of responsibility. He makes one believe that the good life may not only be harder than what we’re used to but sweeter as well.” —The New York Review of Books

“He is . . . the prophetic American voice of our day.” —Christian Science Monitor

About the Author

Wendell Berry is the author of more than fifty books of poetry, fiction, and essays. He was most recently awarded the Cleanth Brooks Medal for Lifetime Achievement by the Fellowship of Southern Writers and the Louis Bromfield Society Award. For more than forty years he has lived and farmed with his wife Tanya in Kentucky.
