”In short fiction as American as apple pie, Currey (Fatal Light ) renders a series of exquisitely melancholy images of small-town life.... With characters limned with compassion and sensitivity. Currey`s is an eloquent voice.” (Publishers Weekly)

Publisher's Description:

The lives of the working class in West Virginia-a train engineer, an epileptic, coal miners and outlaws, the fragile and dispossessed-are explored in this powerful yet tender collection of six short stories and a novella. They depict an isolated world of hardship, human endurance, and hard-won dignity and are a lyrical rendering of times and places now largely gone-but the stirring clarity of people and landscape can persist in the reader`s imagination.
