About this product
- DescriptionDeparting from Appalachia's 150-year-old literary legacy of formula and caricature, West Virginia native Ann Pancake uses the texture of language, an intense attention to place, and complexity of characterization to recreate the region -- its tragic history and fragile culture, the interior landscapes of its people, and their deep rootedness in a threatened land. Her characters, already marginalized ecomically and socially, confront what many perceive as an invading outside culture, enduring and at times transcending the loss of their place, both literally and figuratively. Their stories undermine the assumption that just because people don't articulate what happens inside them, thing much is happening at all.
- Author BiographyANN PANCAKE is a native of West Virginia. Her numerous awards include an NEA grant, the Whiting Award, and a Pushcart Prize. Her novel, Strange As This Weather Has Been (2007) was one of Kirkus Review's Top Ten Fiction Books of 2007. She now teaches in the low-residency MFA program at Pacific Lutheran University.
