Watch with Me: And Six Other Stories of the Yet-Remembered Ptolemy Proudfoot and His Wife, Miss Minnie, Nee Quinch.

    Lumbering, likable, easygoing Kentucky farmer Ptolemy (``Tol'') Proudfoot, who weighs around pounds, might at first seem an unlikely match for dainty, neat, tiny, prim schoolteacher Minnie Quinch. The local nature of their canny, comic tonalities, the old-timey subtitle, and the fact that all the action takes place before might lead browsers to take these Berry stories as merely quaint. That would be a mistake. In fact, like Isaac Bashevis Singer, Berry has been expanding by contraction, husbanding by close focus—in Berry's case, on the familiar demesne of Port William, Ky.
