David Quarles’s New Book ‘Topside’ is a Gripping Historical Fiction That Addresses the Struggles of Coal Miners During the Depression Years

David Quarles, a grandson of an underground coal miner who studied mining engineering at the University of Kentucky who has had a lifelong admiration and curiosity for coal miners, has completed his new book “Topside”: a compelling account that gives insight to readers of the lifestyle of coal miners and their struggles to survive during the Depression in eastern Kentucky.
David writes, “‘Topside’ is a historical fiction depicting life in a typical coal mining company town in eastern Kentucky covering the years from 1900 to 1952. During some of those years, coal miners were considered among the highest paid of the trades, but the Depression years were hard on all who survived it.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Quarles’s new book serves as a potent account of life during the Depression and how a town survived such a difficult era.
Readers can purchase “Topside” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
