Ron “Ron Rash’s Burning Bright is the best short collection I’ve read in years. It’s the perfect follow-up to his masterful Serena. These stories, like Rash himself, emerge from a land steeped in toil and washed in blood, where the people of southern Appalachia wrestle with hardships that they know will either destroy them or save them. These days few authors care about the hard lives of poor people, but Rash understands and writes about them as no one else does.”

RON COOPER, author of Purple Jesus
