A Place in Time

A Place in Time by Wendell Berry (Counterpoint Press, 2012)

This is a collection of short stories about the characters in a fictional small town in Kentucky. Apparently the author has written previous entire novels about them and this is kind of a wrap-up. Most of the characters are very strong, outdoors-oriented men. They seem to enjoy being farmers despite the hard work, and are nostalgic for the old days when life was simpler. While I am sympathetic in a general way, I can’t really relate to their experiences.
