book content

IN THE VALLEY features ten stories that evoke the beauty of Rash's native Appalachia, as well as shining a light on what makes up the region's dark underside: drug abuse, poverty, environmental destruction, and more. Also, the collection features a novella featuring Serena Pemberton, the titular heroine of Rash's perhaps best known novel Serena, that finds her revisiting the land she helped destroy to find a young child that may tear down all that she built.


THIS COPY was hand signed on the title page by Ron Rash at his office. It is a new, unread first edition opened only for signing and comes with a certificate authenticating the signature. Published in August, 2020 by Doubleday, an imprint of Penguin Random House.
