Stuart and his wife Julie decided they were ready to have a baby. She went on vitamins and they went on one last vacation, because they thought it would be no time at all before she was pregnant. But that's not exactly how things went. For nearly two years, they endured grueling fertility treatments, beginning with charting temperatures and predicting ovulation, on to oral fertility drugs, through a laparoscopy, a slew of IUIs, and multiple IVFs, and, finally, a course of homeopathic remedies. Catawampus tells this tale of the madness and confusion of fertility treatments and all that those treatments entail but, this time, it's Stuart that tells the story. So, specimen collecting? Sure. Syringes, large and small? Yes. Heartache, frustration, and anger? Of course, but Stuart also shows what else was going on at the time, because, despite the fact that the fertility process can dominate a couple's focus, life continues to unfold. As such, the book is about a relationship between husband and wife, between parent and child, about friendship, and, ultimately, about what it means to be a father. Oh, yeah, it's also very funny. And filled with a choice selection of rants about popular culture, references to movies ranging from the ridiculous to the mostly-still-ridiculous, citations of literary classics, and a little bit of Nashville thrown in for fun. In the end, it's entertaining and poignant writing, and a necessary and underrepresented perspective of an important, hot-button issue.

Georgette Newton seems to have a predictable future. She will work on the family farm, marry her high school sweetheart, and continue the tradition of raising kids and crops in rural North Carolina. But she yearns to see the exciting places she reads about in Look magazine, and infuriates her parents when, during World War 2, she joins the exclusive U.S. Women's Army Auxiliary Corps. LeRoy Dowdell is a sensitive boy, a misfit in his family and his community. A world-class musician, he longs to play in a big band like that of Tommy Dorsey or Duke Ellington. He lies about his age to enlist in the army, and escape his disapproving father and the rumors of a small town. He hopes a soldier's uniform will be his ticket to travel overseas where Negro jazz performers are revered. It is 1943 and America's involvement in the Great War is at its height. The paths of these two young dreamers cross on a segregated army base near Tucson, Arizona where they fall in love, fight personal battles, forge new friendships and complete their journeys of self-discovery. Nearly one million black soldiers served in WWII but most never faced combat. Long Way Home imagines the daily lives and sacrifices of these men and women, far away from the front lines, whose struggles and triumphs paved the way for civil rights in America.

This volume of six linked stories and the novella from which the book derives its title is set in Port William from 1908 to the Second World War. Here Wendell Berry introduces two of his more indelible and poignant characters, Ptolemy Proudfoot and his wife Miss Minnie, remarkable for the comic and affectionate range that—with the mastery of this consummate storyteller working at the height of his powers—here approaches the Shakespearean. Tol Proudfoot is huge, outsized, in the tradition of the mythic. The three-hundred-pound farmer, personally imposing and unkempt, is also the most graceful of presences, reserved and gallant toward his tiny wife, the ninety-pound schoolteacher. Their contrasts are humorous, of course, and recall the tall tales of rural Americana. In the novella Watch with Me, we are given a story of such depth, breadth, and importance it earns being listed as one of the most important short stories written in the American language during the twentieth century. "Wendell Berry writes with a good husbandman’s care and economy . . . His stories are filled with gentle humor." ―The New York Times Book Review "Berry is the master of earthy country living seen through the eyes of laconic farmers . . . He makes his stories shine with meaning and warmth." ―The Christian Science Monitor "A small treasure of a book . . . part of a long line that descends from Chaucer to Katherine Mansfield to William Trevor." ―Chicago Tribune
Both the beauty and frailty of human connections are seen in the thirteen stories collected in Sympathetic People. Here are women and men struggling to find love, meaning, happiness in marriage, adulterous affairs, art, meditation, and even the passage from life to death. Longing generated by loss is everywhere--in the death of a son, the end of a marriage, the slide from hope ignited by Neil Armstrong's moon walk to hopelessness after President Kennedy's death. In "Hindsight," Jessie, a hippie in Lawrence, Kansas, opts for what she assumes is stability in a world of change, only to be brought up short years later when her life veers off its predicted path. "The Secrets of Snakes" reveals the early ruptures in a marriage and a wife's futile attempts to stop them even as she tries to care for her son's pet racer. In "The Jewel Box," a grandmother promises to let her granddaughter know what Heaven is like after she passes and if, in fact, it looks like the Art Deco greenhouse built in St. Louis during the 1904 World's Fair. And in "Versions," a newlywed in Plano, Texas, entertains her sometimes angry husband's first wife and realizes too late what she has given up in choosing him. "The Second Time the Bird Escapes" brings the collection full circle as a woman vies for attention with her husband's new girlfriend and watches a peacock race across the yard to freedom, its dazzling tail open like an invitation.
