Sandy is smart.
And she's read a lot more Wendell Berry than I have. She's written a few posts about Hannah at her blog site Maple Grove. I find her perspective very helpful as I try to orient myself with Wendell and his ideas and I didn't want any of you to miss her insight.
I have a question for you. (Maybe two.) These are general questions that I've been pondering.
Do you think Hannah, as she was written, is an effective narrator?
Does she convince you that she knows the things she's writing/telling?
Do you feel like you know HER by the end of the book? Could you write a summary of the things that she cares about? Could you predict her attitude or disposition in any given circumstance?
Have you weighed in on the casting call options for Burley? Brad (A River Runs Through It) Pitt and Jeffrey Dean Morgan have been mentioned along with a scruffy George Clooney.
I wonder who should play Hannah.
