Night Ride Home

(1992)
A novel by

 
 
As workers are trapped in a collapsed mine on Christmas Eve in 1941, the everyday lives of the inhabitants of a small Alabama town come to a halt. Grace and redemption undergird the narrative of a son searching for his trapped father, his drunken father-in-law who sobers up long enough to aid in the search, and the town prostitute who brings the community together at the funeral of her stillborn infant.

This reprint edition, ideal for classroom use, includes a new interview with the author and a bibliography of Covington's major writings.
