Denise Mina, Ron Rash - Examining Place.

With novelists Denise Mina and Ron Rash, place plays a vital and affecting role in their writing. For Mina, it’s the mean, gritty streets of Glasgow; for Rash, the moody and rugged Appalachian Mountains.

Denise Mina was born in Glasgow where her nine novels are set. They include the award-winning Garnethill trilogy and the series centred on 1980s journalist Paddy Meehan as she negotiates the macho Glasgow of that era. Ron Rash lives in America’s Appalachian Mountains. His novels, including The New York Times bestseller Serena, have earned him comparisons to John Steinbeck and Cormac McCarthy. Rash’s latest novel, The Cove, is set in Appalachia during the Great War. Join Ron Rash and Denise Mina in conversation with Paul Diamond.
