Product description

Will Alexander is the sheriff in a small town in southern Appalachia, and he knows that the local thug Holland Winchester has been murdered. The only thing is the sheriff can find neither the body nor someone to attest to the killing. Simply, almost elementally told through the voices of the sheriff, a local farmer, his beautiful wife, their son, and the sheriff's deputy, " One Foot in Eden" signals the bellwether arrival of one the most mature and distinctive voices in southern literature.

Customer reviews

By Brian Nolan 09 Nov 2012 4

You can leave the mundane words to others--- Ron Rash captures the
harsh poetry of peoples lives with his engrossing, down to earth,
storytelling and, yet, you can just catch the strains of the fiddle from
across the valley.

Review quote

"One Foot In Eden" is a story of wild, almost primitive force and yet it is neatly and ingeniously put together. Ron Rash knows to the core the ways of those who yearn for what is just beyond their grasp. Here is a lasting experience.--Fred Chappell, Poet Laureate of North Carolina
