Ron Rash 

When: Thu., Nov. 6, 7:30 p.m. 2014



FLYLEAF BOOKS—In his fishing poem "Speckled Trout," Ron Rash writes, "My cousin showed me / those hidden places. I loved / how we found them, the way we / followed no trail, just stream-sound / tangled in rhododendron." Rash has mastered teasing out secret trails in an intimately known landscape and culture. Before becoming a New York Times bestselling author, he grew up in Boiling Springs, North Carolina. In numerous linked books of poetry, short stories and novels, he has established himself as a leading literary observer of Appalachia—not with broad down-home riffs, but acutely, with psychological complexity and gorgeous sentences. His new book Something Rich and Strange collects 30 short stories from four prior collections, making it a perfect gateway into the kudzu of his prose oeuvre. Rash also discusses the book at Quail Ridge in Raleigh at 7:30 on Nov. 6. 7 p.m., free, 752 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., 919-942-7373, —Brian Howe
