Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Citizen Reader's Holiday Gift Guide: Wendell Berry:


I was just having a chat with someone comparing Matt Taibbi and Wendell Berry. I like Matt Taibbi quite a lot, but Berry is whatever word is beyond supertalent. I am giving someone The Unsettling of America.

Yes, yes, yes. As someone who writes about a fictional farm family, I find every statement Berry has made about the land to be right on the money.

And every word he's said about language.

I really loved Berry's novel Hannah Coulter for its sense of values and compassion. It goes in the series with Jayber Crow.
