Books Info:

Nothing Gold Can Stay free pdf New York Times bestselling author Ron Rash returns again to Appalachia to capture lives haunted by violence and tenderness, hope and fear in unforgettable stories that span the Civil War to the present day. In the title story, two drug addicted friends return to the farm where they worked as boys to steal their boss's unusual but valuable war trophies. In 'The Trusty', Ron Rash's first story to appear in the New Yorker, a prisoner sent to fetch water for the chain gang tries to sweet talk a farmer's young wife into helping him escape, only to find she is as trapped as he is. In 'Something Rich and Strange', a diver is called upon to pull a drowned girl's body free from under a falls, but finds her eerily at peace below the surface. The violence of Rash's characters and their raw settings are matched only by their unexpected tenderness and stark beauty, a masterful combination that has earned Rash an avalanche of praise. Ron Rash is a multi-award-winning poet, short story writer and novelist. A PEN/Faulkner finalist for Serena, he is also a recipient of the O.Henry Prize and winner of the 2011 Frank O'Connor Award for Burning Bright, a collection of short stories. His other work includes the novels, One Foot in Eden and The Cove. He teaches at Western Carolina University and lives in the Appalachian Mountains, South Carolina. textpublishing.com.au 'In the end it is not the shocking stories that make this collection so memorable but smaller, more allusive ones such as the deeply impressive 'The Magic Bus'...For in these quieter stories one feels the same compassion that animates 'Twenty-Six Days', and by extension, the sliver of Chekov.' Weekend Australian '[The stories] display a universality that goes beyond time or place...There is a purity and precision in Rash's prose reminiscent of his poetry, that makes these stories deceptively easy to read as they are hard to forget. This is memorable and unflinching short fiction.' Booklist 'Short stories may be to novels as carpentry is to architecture, but all of Rash's stories are crafted, jointed and dovetailed in quite beautiful, striking ways. Perhaps good short stories are consistently distinguished by the sort of severe, exacting clarity in which Rash specialises.' Canberra Times 'Rash writes in the tradition of William Faulkner and Flannery O'Connor and more contemporary writers such as Charles Frazier and Cormac McCarthy. His fiction occupies that strange, language-driven netherland between myth and realism. It's a dark, poetic, blood-soaked world.' Weekend Australian 'Nothing Gold Can Stay is lyrical and honest, grounded in place yet sweeping in scope.' Boston Globe 'Rash is a consummate storyteller...The stories are filled with twists, amusing plays on language and accent, black humour, irony and, of course, beautiful prose.' BookMooch
