Preorder a Signed Copy of In the Valley by Ron Rash

In the Valley: From the best-selling author of Serena, The World Made Straight, and many more novels and poetry collections.

On-sale 8/4/20

In the Valley features ten short stories, and a novella based on Ron's best-selling Serena.   In these ten stories, Rash spins a haunting allegory of the times we live in--rampant capitalism, the severing of ties to the natural world in the relentless hunt for profit, the destruction of body and soul with pills meant to mute our pain--and yet within this world he illuminates acts of extraordinary decency and heroism. And in revisiting Serena Pemberton, Rash updates his bestselling parable of greed run amok as his deliciously vindictive heroine returns to the North Carolina wilderness she left scarred and desecrated to make one final effort to kill the child that threatens all she has accomplished.
