Covetable Reads: April
We are excited to continue The Read + Covet Book Club this April with South Carolinian author Ron Rash’s One Foot In Eden.
A little about the novel from Nicholas Thomas: “Set in the 1950s in Jocassee, a town in South Carolina, Rash tells the story of a local military veteran who suddenly disappears and the people who are involved in the case. Rather than follow the basic fiction formula of moving the plot in a straight line, Rash repeatedly switches the narration to give the story more depth. Told through the voices of the sheriff, the accused farmer, his young wife, their child, and the sheriff's deputy, the author creates more angles than an architect. And that's exactly what Rash is, a literary architect. He starts by slowly setting up the foundation of the story and then gradually builds its structure through his characters' provocative perspectives. In doing this, he gives the reader a panoramic view of the townfolk, and the murder mystery that becomes too tricky to solve.”
If you’d like to take part in our discussion of One Foot In Eden, join us on Wednesday, May 1st (special date change for April), at the shop from 6-8 PM.
Bring yourself, the desire to have a good conversation, & a snack/drink to share!
