It is 1976 and Andy Catlett, farmer and agricultural journalist, is walking the streets of San Francisco at dawn. In the eight months since losing his right hand to a corn-picking machine, he has also lost himself. Two thousand miles from his home in Kentucky, he begins to remember people, the land, and the comfort of knowing his place intimately. Andy's reveries evoke a membership governed by the principles of humanity and love. Inspiring and eye-opening, Remembering follows Andy's journey out of darkness and into the warm light of community.

    " The book was hard to read at first because the protagonist's pain was so deep but it got better as the guy resolved some of his issues. I liked it in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 2/4/2014

    " This was a good book, but it was really melancholy...probably better to read in the summertime than in the dead of winter:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Longfellow | 2/4/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie | 1/27/2014

    " great book, powerful imagery. this is my first berry -- i've long known him as one of our great pastoralists, and finally taken a look. i was impressed. a truly gifted writer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristen | 1/23/2014

    " I think I probably should not read the last book in a Wendell Berry series first. Either that or I should become more perceptive first. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gema Marroquin | 1/14/2014

    " This book has a lot of advices about go on... about how you live with your past and the consecuences and how you enjoy your present ang you expect the future paciently... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mhurst | 1/14/2014

    " Probably Berry's most introspective novel, exploring the interior landscape of protagonist Andy Catlett who is dealing with the depression that ensues following the loss of his right hand in a corn picker, and his sense of estrangement from place when he finds himself in a hotel room in San Francisco. Berry's poetic prose and creative use of an immediate tense invites the reader to proceed slowly through this brief, but rich and rewarding novel. And I agree with Dan Hudnut that the introductory poem is stunning - one of Berry's finest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colette | 1/6/2014

    " One of the best. Ever. Simple. Eloquent. The sturggle of the human being. Wendell Berry captures the essence of being human in a way that is easily identifiable in each of us at one time or another. Read this book. "

    " This was my first Berry novel, and I liked his sleepy style, the way he just sort of leads you through the book like a walk in the park. I will be back for more walks with Mr. Berry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laityfamily | 12/8/2013

    " This book spoke to my soul. I read it in two days. I wish I had known before reading the book that it is part of a series. I will now be starting at the beginning and I can promise you I will be deeply sucked into this series until I've read every book. "

    " I've been reading Berry's poetry and essays for years, and was glad to find that he brings the same philosophical bent, poetic expression and and naturalist spirituality to his novel writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 8/29/2013

    " Not my recommendation for a first foray into the stories of Port William, but a beautiful, thoughtful novel that has a different edge than the others. "

    " Great story about a one-handed farmer/journalist who is remembering things and possibly dreaming and/or speculating? The fact that I have to use the word possibly is the only reason I didn't give it more stars. "
