Ron Rash

I’ve been reading novels written by the poet Ron Rash since they began appearing in 2003. The first, One Foot in Eden is so remarkable I read it twice in a week. His latest, The World Made Straight is also fine: begins with great tension, quietens to a deep study of major and minor characters, then rises to a finish as complex and irresolvable as life. Strongly recommend.
