Serena Book Cover

New York Times bestseller and PEN/Faulkner Award Finalist, SERENA, by award-winning author Ron Rash, is "masterfully written...sprawling, engrossing and-- from time to time--nightmarish," (San Francisco Chronicle). Rash's chilling gothic tale tells of greed, corruption, and revenge set against the backdrop of the 1930s wilderness and America's burgeoning environmental. The novel was named a Best Book of the Year by more than a dozen national publications including The New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, and Miami Herald. The book has been produced as a film directed by Susanne Bier, and starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence; it is expected to premier in the United States at the end of February 2015.
