Praise for Halibut on the Moon

One of The Listener's Best Books of 2019

Praise for Bright Air Black

"[Vann's] genius lies in his ability to blow away all the elegance and toga-clad politeness that have grown like a crust around our idea of ancient Greece and to reveal the bare bones of the Archaic period in all their bloody, reeking nastiness. There is no magic. There are no gods."--Times (UK)

"Incorporating both mesmerizing sentences and concentrated fragments . . . Sensual and violent, often simultaneously, Vann's novel evokes the primal force of women's power."--Booklist

"Bright Air Black shares the same central structure of a searing family drama set against a backdrop of untamed nature . . . At the heart of this ambitious, dazzling, disturbing and memorable novel lies the uneasy juxtaposing of the wild and the civilised, and the complex, shifting relationship between the two." ―Financial Times (UK)

Praise for Aquarium

"Vann's provocative prose is filled with a sense of wonder and beauty, even when the lives he describes are tragic."--Los Angeles Times

"Elegantly written and fiercely imagined...at times, this is a painful novel, but its beauty propels it toward redemption."--Chicago Tribune

"A coming-of-age story that explores the limits of love and forgiveness. Vann submerges you so deeply in Caitlin's world, you'll be gasping for breath when you finally surface."--Entertainment Weekly

"David Vann's work has a spare, parable-like quality...[he] writes with deft control and a gift for prose propelled as effortlessly as a school of fish."--Financial Times
