The stories in this collection nearly all take place in and around the mountain hollows of West Virginia: a world of cock-fighting, coal-mining, deer-stalking, fox-hunting, truck-driving, prize-fighting, sex, depression, drinking and death. They are the work of an uncannily observant chronicler of his region, who brilliantly evokes a whole crowd of doomed and despairing brawlers, murderers, drunkards and demented husbands and wives - desperate people desperately alive

Die Geschichten stellen uns Menschen vor, die hart arbeiten, nicht wissen, was der Tag ihnen bringt, die rau und zuweilen zärtlich miteinander umgehen. Die aushalten, was ihnen abverlangt wird, was sie erlitten haben; die alles tun, um nicht unterzugehen. Und zuversichtlich sind, eines Morgens zu erwachen und ein anderer zu sein
A room forever : the life, work, and letters of Breece D'J Pancake by Thomas E Douglass( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"After twenty-six-year-old author Breece D'J Pancake took his own life in April 1979, the West Virginian's posthumously published short-story collection made a considerable impact on the world of letters. In A Room Forever, Thomas E. Douglass offers a detailed portrait of Pancake's short life, examining the varied circumstances and emotional forces that led to the writer's suicide and exploring Pancake's influence on contemporary fiction generally and Appalachian writing in particular."--BOOK JACKET. "Douglass has recreated the key events of the young artist's life: his West Virginia childhood, his romantic losses, his education as a writer at the University of Virginia, and the acceptance of his work by the East Coast literary establishment. Through analysis of the story fragments reproduced in this volume, including "The Conqueror" and "Shouting Victory," Douglass illustrates the recurring themes - such as fear of failure and the inability to escape disaster - that Pancake expressed so eloquently in his work, and he shows their origins in the writer's own personal history."--BOOK JACKET. "Douglass examines the degree to which Pancake drew on his memories of life in Appalachia and discusses Pancake's influence on other Appalachian writers such as Pinckney Benedict."--BOOK JACKET
