With a foreword by Wade Hall Photographs by Susan Lippman Whether they left Kentucky and returned, as Wendell Berry did, or adopted the Commonwealth as home, like James Still, or grew up and left for good, like Barbara Kingsolver, these writers share a common experience: they have all felt Kentucky's influence. L. Elisabeth Beattie explores this connection in twenty intimate interviews, presenting some of the state's-and the nation's-best-loved writers at their most insightful and revealing.
