By Ron Rash
From the severely acclaimed, award-winning writer of Serena and The Cove, thirty-four of his best brief tales, accumulated in a single volume.
No one captures the complexities of Appalchia—a rugged, brutal panorama of beautiful beauty—as evocatively and indelibly as writer and poet Ron Rash. Winner of the Frank O'Connor foreign brief tale Award, O. Henry prizes, and a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award, Rash brilliantly illuminates the tensions among the normal and the fashionable, the previous and the hot south, tenderness and violence, guy and nature. although his concentration is nearby, the topics of Rash's paintings are common, notable an emotional chord that resonates deep inside of every one of our lives.
Something wealthy and Strange showcases this acclaimed master's artistry and craftsmanship in thirty-two tales culled from formerly released collections and to be had for the 1st time in publication shape: "Outlaws" and "Shiloh."
Each paintings of brief fiction demonstrates Rash's impressive skill to awaken the guts and soul of this land and its people—men and ladies inexorably tethered to the geography that defines and shapes them. jam-packed with suspense and delusion, desire and heartbreak, and advised in language that flows like "shimmering, liquid poetry" (Atlanta Journal-Constitution), Something wealthy and Strange is an iconic paintings from an American literary virtuoso.
