    Andy Catlett is 9 years old when his beloved Uncle Andrew is killed in a shocking act of violence. Andy’s parents and grandparents are consumed with grief; Andy, too, tries to process what has happened but instinctively knows he cannot ask too many questions of the adults in his life. In this novella, the adult Andy remembers his uncle and attempts to understand who he was and the circumstances surrounding his tragic death.A World Lost is part of Wendell Berry’s Port William series, set in a fictional Kentucky town with agriculture at its core. Most of the novels focus on one member of the community during a period in history, and in telling their story Berry also portrays a way of life that has largely been lost due to changes in farming. Port William is undoubtedly modeled on Berry’s hometown in Henry County, Kentucky. Andy Catlett appears to be the most autobiographical of his characters, and takes center stage in both A World Lost and Andy Catlett: Early Travels. Unfortunately, both of these books lack the richness and emotion I have experienced in Berry’s other novels. The themes explored in A World Lost might have had more impact written as a personal essay than semi-autobiographical fiction.

    In this fifth Berry novel, a man approaching sixty contemplates the murder of an uncle much earlier in his life — the reader seeing how it has affected him, family, and community members. The remembrances are presented as disembodied fragments in time. Herein, Berry considers man's violence and the ripple affects of the consequences.

    In my view, this book is another example of first-class writing skills.
