really liked it
Read from June 16 to 25, 2010

It was a pleasure to read Rash's work for the first time. Serena made a big splash, but I wasn't aware he wrote stories. Beautiful, understated writing. I found the stories that dealt with the ravaged lives of people dealing in rural areas with meth addiction to be the most powerful. Some of the other stories fell flat for me, felt underdeveloped or had endings that seemed to just die out, making them unmemorable. But I will for sure check out all his other work.

Sandra You are going to LOVE Ron Rash. Be sure to go back and read "Saints at the River" and "One Foot in Eden". I have read all of them and they are all great! Enjoy! txwildflower

Tara I am enjoying them, and will take your advice and read the others. Review to come. Thanks, Sandra.
