Overview

The "New York Times" bestselling author of "Serena" the basis of the fall 2014 movie starring Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper illuminates lives shaped by violence, passion, and a powerful connection to the land in this haunting tale set in contemporary Appalachia.

Les, a long-time sheriff nearing retirement, contends with the ravages of poverty and crystal meth on his small Appalachian town. Nestled in a beautiful hollow of the Appalachians, his is a tight-knit community rife with secrets and suspicious of outsiders.

Becky, a park ranger, arrives in this remote patch of North Carolina hoping to ease the anguish of a harrowing past. Searching for tranquility amid the verdant stillness, she finds solace in poetry and the splendor of the land.

A vicious crime will plunge both sheriff and ranger into deep and murky waters, forging an unexpected bond between them. Caught in a vortex of duplicity, lies, and betrayal, they must navigate the dangerous currents of a tragedy that turns neighbor against neighbor and threatens to sweep them all over the edge.

Echoing the lapsarian beauty of William Faulkner and the spiritual isolation of Carson McCullers, "Above the Waterfall" demonstrates the prodigious talent of an author hailed as a gorgeous, brutal writer (Richard Price); one of the best American novelists of his day (Janet Maslin, "New York Times"). Lyrical and evocative, tragic and indelible, it is a breathtaking achievement from a literary virtuoso."
