A World Lost

Wendell Berry


  • Paperback
    $23.01
PUBLISHED: 31st May 2008
ISBN: 9781582434186
ANNOTATION:
Set against the turmoil of the World War II, "A World Lost" is just one of the classic chapters in Berry's "Port William" series. The summer of 1944 finds nine-year-old Andy Catlett in that very town in Kentucky, occupied more with watching meadowlarks and dipping into the nearby spring than with the weary news of the day. But when his Uncle Andrew is murdered, Andy confronts his own sense of culpability for the brawl that took his uncle's life. Told from Andy's perspective some 50 years later, the novel explores the gripping power of memory, even after decades have passed — and asks each of us what in our own pasts we might have remedied.
