New in paperback.

“A slender set of spare and menacing depictions of the unforgiving ways of life in rural Appalachia, Burning Bright finds a narrow sweet spot between Raymond Carver’s minimalism and William Faulkner’s Gothic.”—Washington Post

“If you haven’t heard of the Southern writer Ron Rash, it is time you should.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer

“In the front ranks of the best American novelists.”—Pat Conroy

In Burning Bright, the award-winning and New York Times bestselling author of the bestselling Serena captures the complexities of the dichotomous and fractious land that is Appalachia—a muse; a siren; a rugged, brutal landscape of exceptional beauty, promise, and suffering. The stories span the years from the Civil War to the present day, and Rash’s historical and modern settings are sewn together in a hauntingly beautiful patchwork of suspense and myth, populated by raw and unforgettable characters mined from the landscape.

In these stories, Rash brings to light a previously unexplored territory, hidden in plain sight—first a landscape, and then the dark yet lyrical heart and the alluringly melancholy soul of his characters and their home.
