Ron Rash

Ron Rash is the critically acclaimed and award-winning author of One Foot in Eden, Saints at the River, The World Made Straight, Chemistry and Other Stories, Serena, Burning Bright, (winner of the prestigious international Frank O’Connor Award for short fiction), The Cove, Nothing Gold Can Stay and Something Rich and Strange.

Equally recognized as a poet, short story writer, and novelist, Rash brings to all his work a masterful command of language and a deep sense of the Appalachian South. While critics have compared his epic narratives to Shakespeare, his compelling plotlines to Raymond Chandler, and his lyric sensibility to William Faulkner and Toni Morrison, Rash’s nuanced and thought-provoking fiction distinguishes him as a unique literary voice in his own right.
