Appreciating Wendell Berry's 'Jayber Crow'

Berry has the soul of a poet, the pen of a novelist, the barbed insight of an essayist.

His literary output features the construction of a community and all its inhabitants, Port William.  Over the course of his long career he has fleshed out that fictional world, creating of whole cloth a microcosm of the human condition.

About the same time I watched his interview with President Carter, I saw his name appear in the Dallas Morning News book section.  There on the list of ten must-read books was his latest novel at the time, a beautiful volume with the wonderful title, Jayber Crow.
