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.

I loved this story as the author slowly makes his way through the different lives of the characters and, much like life, lets us know only a glimpse of what there is to be known about them. the narrator did a wonderful job throughout. There are also loads of wisdom to be had in the authors insight.

It is 1976 and Andy Catlett, farmer and agricultural journalist, is walking the streets of San Francisco at dawn. In the eight months since losing his right hand to a corn-picking machine, he has also lost himself. Two thousand miles from his home in Kentucky, he begins to remember people, the land, and the comfort of knowing his place intimately. Andy's reveries evoke a membership governed by the principles of humanity and love.

Truly a delight of a book. The way that the author meanders his way through the life of the man all the while picking out insightful life lessons and powerful metaphors that make one feel at though they are the subject the book is splendid.
