Quail Ridge Books—Ron Rash's hillbilly epic Serena tells the story of one Serena Pemberton, a ruthless woman who cuts a violent swath through the timber culture of Western North Carolina in the 1920s. It's the fourth novel for Rash, who teaches at Western Carolina University. The novel received a rave review in these pages a week ago, when Bronwen Dickey wrote, "Serena is that rare breed of book that is both tightly plotted and elegantly written, suspenseful and profound. By the story's end its title character—a Lady Macbeth without the conscience—has conducted a sweeping symphony of murder and mayhem, but she's undoubtedly a woman who'll stay with you a long time." Rash wraps up the Triangle leg of his book tour with a reading tonight at 7:30 p.m. Visit quailridgebooks.booksense.com for more info. Fans of Southern fiction may want to catch him at the fall conference of the North Carolina Writers Network, Nov. 14-16, where he'll be the keynote speaker. Visit www.ncwriters.org.—David Fellerath
