The Memory of Old Jack
by Wendell Berry

Reader’s Choice: A Favorite Passage

“That a whole roomful of people should sit with their mouths open like a nest of young birds, peering into a picture box ... is strange to him, unreal; he might have slept long and waked in a land of talking monkeys.”

—page 188, Chapter 8
Harvest paperback

submitted by BPressler, who adds:

I like it because he’s talking about television. And, well, when you think about it, we really are a bunch of “talking monkeys.”
