Praise
"The gripping plot, gothic atmosphere, and striking descriptions...make this a top-notch story of an unusual place and its fated and fearful denizens."
"Poet and literary novelist Rash effortlessly summons the rugged Appalachian landscape as well as the small-mindedness and xenophobia of a country in the grip of patriotic fervor, drawing striking parallels to the heated political rhetoric of today."
"Resolution, when it arrives, is swift, brutal and unexpected. A breathless sequence of events lead the book to its devastating final sentence. And that sentence affirms Mr. Rash's reputation for writerly miracles. . . . "
"Lonely young woman meets mysterious stranger. What might have been trite and formulaic is anything but in Rash's fifth novel, a dark tale of Appalachian superstition and jingoism so good it gives you chills." (starred review)
"[I]t's clear that THE COVE isn't just an elegant work of literary fiction, written in a voice that's hauntingly simple and Southern; it's also a riveting mystery."
