This week I have begun reading Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry. This is not my normal pick for reading. I am challenging myself this year to consider books I normally would pass by on the shelf. I find that I am intrigued to learn more about this barber is Port William.
“Telling a story is like reaching into a granary full of wheat and drawing out a handful. There is always more to tell than can be told. As almost any barber can testify, there is also more than needs to be told, and more than anybody wants to hear.” Jayber Crow – page 29
This book has quickly drawn me in. Mr. Berry is doing a delightful job in setting before the reader Port William, Jayber, and all that comes alongside them.
