The Berkshire Reader: Writings from New England's Secluded Paradise by Richard Nunley
Because almost every important figure in America's literary history passed through the Berkshires, this anthology illustrates the connections, affections, prejudices and strong opinions which united and divided our literary lights. Richard Nunley has lived in the Berkshires since 1957. He is a poet, a columnist for The Berkshire Eagle and a professor of English at Berkshire Community College. Michael McCurdy is an artist, illustrator, and author. His wood engravings have appeared in many books for both adults and children.
