What exactly are the "classics," anyway? There is no way that I know of to come up with a fixed list of authors or titles. In my opinion, when someone asks me about classic American books and authors, I'm thinking in terms of books that not only have literary merit but have stood the test of time. We were talking about Bess Streeter Adrich at yesterday's Book Lovers Club meeting. Here's one of her better-known titles:
A Lantern in Her Hand
If the values in this book resonate with you, you might enjoy the books by Wendell Berry, especially this one:
Hannah Coulter or A World Lost
Does anyone else know of contemporary authors who celebrate the agrarian way of life?
