Book Overview

In these seven interrelated stories we are again invited to Port William, Kentucky. Rich with humor and wisdom, this collection describes the depth of affection and tolerance for eccentricity that these neighbors bear toward one another, and highlights the comic and often poignant ways they cope with the intrusions of the 20th century into their idyllic, agrarian world. From the Trade Paperback edition.

simply powerful

At first glance, this book seemed slow-paced and a little too down-home. However, when I took the time to really take in these stories, I was struck by the everyday wisdom and tenderness filling each one. True, not a lot happens, but the Tol and Minnie are brimming over with understated southern humor combined with loving admiration for one another. These are great to read alone-- I can hardly put this book down-- but would be even better read aloud.

A book of homor and deep emotion, told simply.

For anyone who enjoys the wisdom often found in the simplest of settings, Watch With Me is a must read. Wendell Berry writes us a simple story of a farmer and his wife. Yet, the stories he tells and the language he uses will move you like few books can. Many of your emotions are mined by this book: humor, anger, anxiety, etc. The one compelling feeling you will experience with this book, however, is warmth. I strongly recommend this book to anyone, but especially to those who are looking to reset their internal compass toward those things in life that are truly important.
