Wendell Berry and Others in Berkeley
Blog Watch: "I Heart Wendell Berry"

Blog Watch: "My introduction to Wendell Berry at the Paideia Prize banquet last night"

I had heard that his books were pretty good. And soon I fell to reading his novels. It was a bit like going through the wardrobe and entering another world.
The world I entered was a world of life, and death, and joy, and sorrow, and peace, and far-off war, and laughter, and weeping, and charity, and violence; it was a world of work, and play, and friendship, and love. There was something striking about this world, and for a long time I couldn’t put my finger on it. And then one day I realized what it was: It was not another world that I had entered. The world that I had entered was this world.
All roads lead to Port William.
