@ Busboys and Poets 14th & V: Ron Rash - Above the Waterfall

Monday, September 28, 2015 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Through several collections of poetry and short stories along with longer fiction—notably Serena, the basis for a movie—Rash has made the isolated, economically depressed communities of Appalachia his fictional territory. In his fifth novel, this skillful nature writer combines astute social commentary with a compelling plot, following a sheriff who’s nearing retirement and all but burnt-out from battling the dire effects of crystal meth abuse. Working with a park ranger, he tries to resolve a dispute over a poisoned trout stream and get to the bottom of a series of violent incidents.

This event is part of the Politics & Prose and the PEN/Faulkner Foundation Contemporary Fiction Reading Series at Busboys and Poets.
