Litquake and Green Apple Books are proud to host the San Francisco launch of David Vann's newest novel, Aquarium. Vann will be in conversation with Tom Barbash (Stay Up With Me) on Monday, March 23rd, 2015 at 7pm at Viracocha.
In crystalline, chiseled, yet graceful prose, Aquarium takes us into the heart of a brave young girl whose longing for love and capacity for forgiveness transforms the damaged people around her. Relentless and heartbreaking, primal and redemptive, Aquarium is a transporting story from one of the best American writers of our time.
"Like Melville, Faulkner, and McCarthy, Vann is already one of the great ones of American literature."--ABC(Spain)"Vann's prose is as pure as a gulp of water from an Alaskan stream."--Financial Times
In the tradition of classic short stories by John Cheever and Tobias Wolff, those in Tom Barbash's evocative collection explore the myriad ways we try to connect to one another and to the sometimes cruel world around us. The newly single mother in "The Break" interferes with her son's love life over his Christmas vacation from college.
