I pulled this comment off Sally Bubier’s Facebook page (after hearing her rave about the book yesterday)
I just finished reading Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry. It is absolutely the most beautifully written book I have ever read. He puts into words that which is too big, too mundane, too true and too moving to easily ever put into words. I found myself almost sobbing with some unnameable emotion every few pages. Thank you Denise Lane Fitzsimmons and John Fitzsimmons for insisting I read it. I get it. In fact, I told my first client that I had just finished it early this morning. He said, “My God, that is one of my most favorite books. How can you even
think about working today.” Exactly.
