Booklist Reviews 2017 October #1

*Starred Review* Berry's first reader-editor, his wife, Tanya, maintains that his "principal asset as a writer" is that he repeats himself. Just so. He writes fiction in prose and verse about the same set of people, further poetry of personal reflection, and nonfiction on the conduct of good farming and the bedrock agriculture provides, and all these forms of writing are gathered in this small collection. But since the essays engage Berry's fictional alter ego, Andy Catlett, with his real farming mentor, Elton Penn, and his real bosom colleagues Gene Logsdon, Wes Jackson, Maury Telleen, and David Kline, there is something new here, after all. There are newer comrades, too, introduced in "The Order of Loving Care," practitioners of the kind of forestry that chimes with Berry's kind of farming, that is, as a permanent living together of land, plants, animals, and people in a community of love. Berry well knows that such an ideal isn't original and demonstrates its perdurability throughout classic literature, from the Bible and Homer to Virgil, Dante, Chaucer, Ronsard, Spenser, Shakespeare, Milton, and Wordsworth. He also knows how unpopular such an ideal is among economists, scientists, and politicians in hyperindustrial America. About everything he loves and everything he regrets, he has never written better. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
