By Ron Rash
From the severely acclaimed, award-winning writer of Serena and The Cove, thirty-four of his best brief tales, gathered 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 overseas brief tale Award, O. Henry prizes, and a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award, Rash brilliantly illuminates the tensions among the conventional and the fashionable, the previous and the recent south, tenderness and violence, guy and nature. although his concentration is local, the topics of Rash's paintings are common, amazing an emotional chord that resonates deep inside each 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 astounding skill to rouse the guts and soul of this land and its people—men and girls inexorably tethered to the geography that defines and shapes them. full of suspense and fantasy, wish and heartbreak, and informed in language that flows like "shimmering, liquid poetry" (Atlanta Journal-Constitution), Something wealthy and Strange is an iconic paintings from an American literary virtuoso.
