Format: Paperback
Somebody needs to get the word out about this book. Rash, who is also a fine poet, now establishes himself as one of the best new southern fiction writers. Rising to the top in this crowded field is not such an easy task, but this collection of heartfelt, challenging and sometimes disturbing stories should be the drawstring that brings his star up from the well.
Imaginative and yet often grimly realistic, stories like "Dangerous Love" where a young woman falls in love with a carnival knife thrower and "Overtime" where David Thompson makes a tragic appearance as "Cedric" are sure to move the reader.
The fact that Rash has in his life straddled the line between his blue collar roots and his academic destiny is clear in this work. While some of the writing might remind one of Larry Brown, the physical violence of Brown's work is substituted for here by a more subtle violence of the heart. I highly recommend this collection and look forward to whatever might be next.
