Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A Place on Earth is a masterpiece—the best thing Wendell Berry has done, a book not to be missed.” New York Times Book Review
“This is not a book to read at a sitting. It needs to be savored. Written by a craftsman poet, every word is chosen with great care. Many of Berry’s poems reveal the same fascination with the rhythms and cycles of rural living as A Place on Earth, just as his essays reflect his integrity and common sense.” Newsday
“The multiple story lines of loss and redemption weave together at a deliberate pace, much like the agrarian rhythms of planting and harvesting that Berry holds so dear. As always, [narrator] Michael demonstrates a special knack for dialogue, especially the nuances of marriage, family and friendship in a rural community.” Publishers Weekly (starred audio review)
“Paul Michael gives voice to Berry’s beautiful prose, carrying the listener through life’s cycle of birth and death as complicated by the events of WWII…Michael’s subtle characterizations offer emotion and levity in just the right doses. He applies sweet southern accents just as easily as he tosses out amusing colloquialisms. Don’t miss his depiction of Port William’s celebration of the end of the war.” AudioFile
