Summary

Ron Rash has been acclaimed as "the best American novelist I have come upon in the last 20 years" by The Scotsman. Set deep in the heart of the Appalachian mountains, this new collection of short stories confirms his reputation again and again. Nothing Gold Can Stay transports the listener to another place, and illuminates the world around us in unexpected ways.

Critic reviews

"Rash can create a character in a single sentence; this is the great American short story at its best" (The Times)
"All these stories speak about relationships, and at their heart is often the desire for something better, something more. Rash's unforgettable, beautifully crafted, sure and strong stories tap into what human beings want from each other, and want from the world" (Independent on Sunday)
"Could sit comfortably on any bookshelf beside Cormac McCarthy and Charles Frazier" (Guardian)
"Ron Rash tells great stories. Raw and powerful" (Irish Times)
