Ron Rash on Southern Writing, the Short Story, and Film Versions of His Books

Author Ron Rash is an Appalachian poet, short story writer, and novelist. Well-known in academic circles for his impeccable way with words and his mastery of the short story, Rash’s readership is growing and he has begun earning wider and more diverse critical acclaim since two of his books have been adapted for the silver screen. Film versions of his novels Serena, whose dynamic and villainous female protagonist casts a spell over fellow characters and readers alike, and The World Made Straight both came out this year. In a recent public radio interview in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Rash described his writing’s origins and style and spoke about the film adaptations of his books.
