«The life in the country, by its nature, it´s violent» | A conversation with Chris Offutt
Chris Offutt writes about the hills of Kentucky as others write about love. His books stand out for portraying the culture of the area, the lonely beauty of the mountains. They are also a fight against stereotypes of Appalachian people. His books are full of individuals for whom survival is a daily act, where violence sometimes becomes a job, a hobby, or a prison sentence.
