Winner of the 2004 Michigan Literary Fiction Award for novel A haunting story of the power of death, the pain of loss, and the possibility of hope. "Gripping, damning, and transfixing."--Entertainment Weekly " ... possesses a time-bending gravity. ... [A] small classic of graceful language and earned emotion."--San Francisco Chronicle ". . . a beautifully written novel of war and the wrenching grief and unanswerable questions it leaves in its wake. ... A Century of November is full of precise, startling imagery and elegant, richly poetic description--Wetherell seems genuinely incapable of writing a lazy sentence--and this last section of the novel is as surreal, hypnotic and harrowing as any literature in recent memory. The whole thing, in fact, is a jewel, an unforgettable historical novel that Wetherell has carefully (and artfully) seeded with loads of contemporary resonance." --Star-Tribune (Minneapolis) "A poignant, probing story. ... Wetherell's prose and character writing are unflinching ... [and his] take on a parent's anguish is deeply moving." --Publishers Weekly "A timely reminder of the devastation of mortal combat. . . ." --Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Where wars go to die : the forgotten literature of World War I by W. D Wetherell( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the world commemorates the hundredth anniversary of World War I, the literary canon of the war has consolidated around the memoirs written in the years after the Armistice by soldier-writers who served in the trenches. Another kind of Great War literature has been almost entirely ignored: the books written and published during the war by the greatest English, American, French, and German writers at work--books that show us how the best, most influential writers responded to an overpowering human and cultural catastrophe. Where Wars Go to Die: The Forgotten Literature of World War I explores this little-known cache of contemporary writings by the greatest novelists, poets, playwrights, and essayists of the war years, examining their interpretations and responses, weaving excerpts and quotations from their books into a narrative that focuses on the various ways civilian writers responded to an overwhelming historical reality."--Amazon.com

Summer of the bass : my love affair with America's greatest fish by W. D Wetherell( Book )

2 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The black bass is not only the most popular American gamefish, fished for by millions, but is also one of the country's most iconic creatures, embodying many of the traits and virtues we like to think of as typically American. And yet, despite the hundreds of "how-to" books published on bass fishing over the years, few if any authors have stepped back to examine the bass's place in the natural world, to honor its virtues, and describe its remarkable adaptions to an ever-changing environment as it spread from its original home in the continent's middle to 49 out of the 50 states. Bass tournaments with huge cash prizes, overpowered bass boats, glitzy bass fishing programs on TV. That's what people think of when they think of bass--a heavily commercialized, over-the-top commodity involving big bucks and crowds. That the bass can also be a creature of the quiet, forgotten places, the beautiful wild places, is a story that has been drowned beneath all the bassy hype and buzz. In Summer of the Bass; My Love Affair with America's Greatest Fish, prizewinning novelist and dedicated fly-fisher W. D. Wetherell sets out to change our views of the smallmouth and largemouth, restoring them to their status as one of the world's truly great fishes. Part natural history, part cultural investigation, part memoir, Summer of the Bass, in its whole-hearted, lyrical celebration of the bass's many virtues, gives America's greatest fish the classic is has long deserved.
