display_description "Dazzling.... Vann knows the darkness but he writes from the compassionate light of art. This is an essential book." —Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain
"Exceptional....An unflinching portrait of bad faith and bad dreams." —Ron Rash, author of Burning Bright
Set against the backdrop of Alaska's unforgiving wilderness, Caribou Island is David Vann's dark and captivating tale of a marriage pulled apart by rage and regret. With this eagerly anticipated debut novel, a masterful follow-up to his internationally bestselling short fiction anthology, Legend of a Suicide, Vann takes up the mantle of Louise Erdrich, Marilyn Robinson, and Rick Moody, delivering a powerfully wrought, enthrallingly emotional narrative of struggle and isolation.
