Readers Review The Slow Farm


As Tarn Wilson fingers “little beads of memory,” she creates a textured memoir of a childhood that captures the zeitgeist of the 60’s from a child’s point of view. In a pastiche of forms—from narrative, to myth, to historical record, to emails—Wilson draws her reader in to consider what happens when idealism meets the reality of our “flawed and lovely world.”     ~Brenda Miller


We want to know what you think. Please send us a short review (150 word limit)—not just “like” or “thumbs down,” but something that tells others how, or why, the book matters. We will post your review for the appropriate book. Each month, we will ask one reviewer to join us as a “guest” reviewer with comments on a favorite nonfiction book for our Recommended Reading page.
