Book Nook: More Scenes from the Rural Life, by Verlyn Klinkenborg

more-scenes-from-rural-life-verlyn-klinkenborg-hardcover-cover-art.jpg

Verlyn Klinkenborg is the author of a column called "The Rural Life," essays which appear on an irregular basis in the editorial pages of the New York Times. These pithy pieces are often inspired by his observations about life on the rural acreage that he owns somewhere in New York State.  The author can be a bit mysterious when it comes to describing the precise location of his small farm. It appears that he enjoys keeping his readers guessing in regard to that particular mystery.

Klinkenborg has just published "More Scenes from the Rural Life." This is a collection of meditations and reflections that we can savor one by one.  You will be smiling when you read them. In this interview the author talks about some of these pieces and he explains how "The Rural Life" came to be a part of The New York Times.
