ABSTRACT
This article presents information on several books. Some of them are "The Coal Tattoo," by Silas House, is a novel filled to the brim with the spirit of music, whether it's the music of the Eastern Kentucky hills, Pentecostal church hymns, or the honk-tonk music of bars and clubs of Nashville. A love and appreciation of music also appear to guide the hand of House in the writing of the novel, especially in part one where the names of the chapters are the names of songs or albums. "Hannah Coulter," by Wendell Berry. Berry has written over forty volumes of fiction, poetry, and essays, and won critical literary acclaim worldwide. "Hannah Coulter" is the latest installment in his story about the citizens of Port William, a fictional place he's been writing about since 1960. The story is narrated by Hannah Coulter who, in her late seventies, is looking back on her life and how she became a member of the Port William community. Twice-widowed, with her children grown up and away from home, she has led a life filled with hard work, struggle and much heartache.
