Book Description

In The Wars of Heaven, Richard Currey focuses his poetic imagination on the lives of the working class in West Virginia—a train engineer, an epileptic, coal miners and outlaws, the fragile and dispossessed—depicting an isolated world of hardship, human endurance, and hard-won dignity. Like Sherwood Anderson's "Winesburg, Ohio," Currey speaks of a rural life with power and tenderness, giving us a lyric rendering of times and places now largely gone. The stirring clarity of people and landscape persists in the reader's imagination.
