Haigh writes about them, as she has in several novels set in the fictitious coal town of Bakerton, in the western part of the state. Haigh is an expertly nuanced storyteller long overdue for major attention.

Heat and Light

Thank you! Haigh, who wrote a morally complex, narrowly focused book about the hot-button issue of child molestation by Catholic priests in Faith , takes a broader approach in this sprawling, thickly populated novel about fracking. Prison guard Rich Devlin and his dissatisfied wife, Shelby, a neurotically protective mother, are one of the first to sign a lease—for too little money per acre, they soon learn. Then the digging noise begins to keep them awake, their water turns undrinkable, and their sickly daughter gets sicker or does she? Meanwhile at the organic dairy farm next door, lesbian partners Mack and Rena refuse to sign. Rena is soon drawn into the larger anti-fracking movement and finds herself dangerously attracted to a male activist.

Apr 27, “Heat and Light,” her latest and most sweepingly panoramic book, opens up a whole new chapter in this town's fraught history. And the trouble.
