									A Place on Earth
Port William

Author: Wendell Berry

Part ribald farce, part lyrical contemplation, Wendell Berry's novel is the story of a place-Port William,
Kentucky-the farm lands and forests that surround it, and the river that runs nearby The rhythms of this
novel are the rhythms of the land. A Place on Earth resonates with variations played on themes of
change; looping transitions from war into peace, winter into spring, browning flood destruction into
greening fields, absence into presence, lost into found. This brings the revised 1983 edition back into
print, the next book in our program to put all of Wendell Berry's fiction into print in revised and corrected
uniform editions.
