Description

&;Set during World War One, The Cove is a novel that speaks intimately to today&;s politics. Beautifully written, tough, raw, uncompromising, entirely new. Ron Rash is a writer&;s writer who writes for others.&;&;Colum McCann

&;Ron Rash is a writer of both the darkly beautiful and the sadly true; The Cove solidifies his reputation as one of our very finest novelists.&;&;Richard Russo, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Empire Falls

Here is a magnificent tale that captures the wondrous beauty of nature and love&;and the darkness of superstition and fear&;from one of America&;s most exciting contemporary novelists. With The Cove, Ron Rash, author of the acclaimed New York Times bestseller Serena, returns to the Appalachian milieu he has previously so memorably evoked. A two-time O. Henry Prize winner for his short fiction&;and recipient of the 2010 Frank O&;Connor International Story Award and the 2010 SIBA Book Award for his story collection Burning Bright&;Rash can expect more honors for The Cove, a novel that brilliantly explores often dangerous notions of patriotism during wartime. This story of a love affair doomed in the rising turmoil of WWI resonates powerfully in today&;s world.
