The Wars of Heaven

(1988)
A collection of stories by

 
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.
