New novels by Chanelle Benz (The Gone Dead) and Mesha Maren (Sugar Run) dig into the experiences of women confronting family, identity, and fate in Mississippi and the Appalachians. Issues of race, sexuality and economics entwine in narratives that ask us to consider the implications of history, poverty, and what we mean when we say “rural.”
