A short while back, when my first book The Darkest Hour came out, The Wall Street Journal compared my writing to the movie directors Alfred Hitchcock and Carol Reed.

What makes a GREAT book?


I was asked this recently.


My answer: When the world and characters of that book invade my dreams.


I know that there are a lot of answers to this question, like…


Great characters that I can relate to.

One that makes me cry.


Or


A plot that surprises or shocks.


All good answers,...

They refuse to accept that the festive season is only four months away because it’s still warm and sunny and any thoughts of dark winter mornings need to be pushed back until at least Halloween....

There's a good reason the Atlanta Journal Constitution called Ron Rash "one of the major writers of our time." To me, he is this and more. Ron Rash writes in a gritty, mountain vernacular that can't be faked; one has to come from it and know it as their own voice of consciousness in order to wiel... Read more of this blog post »
