Some friends and I (from are currently reading the collected publication _Three Short Novels_, by Berry. The novels collected within are _Nathan Coulter_, _Remembering_, and _A World Lost_.
Currently, I'm almost done with _Remembering_, and like all of Berry's writing - I'm loving it.

My friends and I had recently finished _All the King's Men_ by Robert Penn Warren, and we marveled at what an amazing american writer Penn Warren was.
Then, I pick up Berry - expecting the "ethos" to be just what I need ... and I find that it's that and so much more.
_Remembering_ is proving to be quite a work of art. It is just as much about the writing, the style, the layeredness of it, as it is about the beautiful scenes and heartgripping points that Berry is making about a life of pace, wonder, and remembering. Some of the style is "warren-esque," and really just as good, if not better.

I'm wondering why Berry's name isn't more prominent in the American writer's circles - fiction or not ...

I just finished a book Lost Mountain by Erik Reece that has a foreward by Wendell Berry. (They are both from Kentucky)

I thought this was nature lit, not agrarian lit ;)

I just finished Fidelity: Five Stories. Amazing. I can't wait to find and read these 3 novellas.

I'm a great fan of Wendell Berry's Jayber Crow. I read it last year and think it is his best work. I can guarantee that Berry admirers will like it.

I've read Warren's poetry and agree he is outstanding and somewhere in the same vein as Berry. He is the only person to have won Pulitzer Prizes for both fiction and poetry.
