it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction

Five of Wendell Berry's short stories collected together in one place. "A Jonquil for Mary Penn" in my mind is one of the most beautiful stories in the English language. I've never read anyone who can make a sad story sing the way Mr. Berry does. If you have never read any of Wendell Berry, this is as good a place as any to begin.

Silvia Cachia I agree with you, a good place to begin. I even like it more than the only other novel by him I've read, Hannah Coulter. (Maybe not, but the 5 stories give the book some variety over a theme, and make his extreme sadness a bit more bearable to the reader, -grin.)
