In his new novel, author Ron Rash explores that ability to reckon with the past and move forward with a sense of wonder. We talk with him about “Above the Waterfall,” his poetry-infused mystery involving a local sheriff on the verge of retirement, a park ranger and the residents of a small North Carolina mountain town.
