Benjamin Whitmer was born in 1972 and raised on back-to-the-land communes and counterculture enclaves ranging from Southern Ohio to Upstate New York.

From Legends of the Fall, which I’m rereading by reading to my children.


People finally don’t have much affection for questions, especially one so leprous as the apparent lack of a fair system of rewards and punishments on earth.
