"Jonathan Corcoran's Appalachian voice, so fierce, so tender,portrays tradition as both weapon and soothing balm. The Rope Swing takes us inside quiet revolutions of the soul in mountain towns far from Stonewall: we can never go home again, but we recognize ourselves in these linked stories of love, loss, the economic tyranny of neglect and exploitation, and the lifelong alliance between those who stay and those who leave. The Rope Swing establishes a new American writer whose unerring instincts are cause for celebration." -Jayne Anne Phillips, author of Quiet Dell, Lark and Termite, and Black Tickets
