Berry brings us once again to his fictional Port William. His best fiction, I think, since "The Memory of Old Jack" (one of my top five all-time favorite books).
For the firt time, tho, for those of you who know Berry's work, the modern world is beginning to creep in. It's refreshing in a bittersweet sort of way. An American master at his peak.
Take a look at Berry's poetry and essays, as well; they're wonderful.
