"Too much too soon disappears." The sentiment in those five words, from the closing line of a 2002 poem, defines a life's work for Ron Rash. Since 2003 the holder of the John Parris Chair in Appalachian Studies at Western Carolina University, Rash is the author of fourteen books—novels, collections of short stories, and volumes of poetry. Evident in his work is respect for mountain people, language, history, and culture.
Rash has reaped a harvest of prizes, among them the Novello Festival Novel Award, the O. Henry Award, the Sir Walter Raleigh Award, and the Frank O'Connor Award. In 2004 his life and work was the focus of the annual literary festival at Emory and Henry College. In 2011 he was inducted into the Fellowship of Southern Writers.
