Description
Information
Ron Rash has long been a critically acclaimed writer but his novel, Serena, catapulted him to new heights garnering rave reviews across Australia and becoming a New York Times bestseller. The New Yorker said 'Rash's evocative rendering of the blighted landscape and the tough characters who inhabit it recalls both John Steinbeck and Cormac McCarthy.'

Burning Bright is a richly woven collection of short stories that melds the dark with the beautiful in deftly painted portraits of Appalachia, ranging from the Civil War to present day. The personalities that come alive in Rash's storytelling find their downfalls in different ways. Tied together by a common thread, they are people in desperate situations, searching for a glimmer of happiness, whether real or a delusion. As each story unfolds, Rash quietly builds suspense to reveal harrowing realities and the raw emotions of human nature.

With simple and engaging prose, Rash brilliantly captures the essence of the region he knows best, leading his readers deep into the lives of his characters, empathising with them in the most unexpected ways.
