Reviews
"Summoning the Dead is a riveting collection on the ever-evolving, always lyric, consistently unforgettable oeuvre of Ron Rash. These essays--comprehensively researched, beautifully written, thoroughly accessible--illuminate what's impossible to ignore: Ron Rash has minted a trove of Appalachian literature that stamps him as wholly original, a writer of indisputable national stature."--Joseph Bathanti, North Carolina poet laureate (2012-14), author of The Life of the World to Come
"Over the past fifteen years Ron Rash has become not just a great writer, but one of a tiny handful of artists indispensable to our understanding not only of Appalachia, but to all of America. In Summoning the Dead, Wilhelm and Vernon have assembled a brilliantly illuminating skeleton key to Rash's work."--Mark Powell, author of Small Treasons
"Ron Rash has become one of the most important Appalachian writers. This collection will establish the terms for discussing Rash's work for the next generation of readers."--David A. Davis, Mercer University
