Beschreibung

A shocking, suspenseful and daring new novel from one of the greatest American writers at work today, whose previous books include Caribou Island, Dirt and Legend of a Suicide.In David Vann's searing novel Goat Mountain, an eleven-year-old boy is eager to make his first kill at his family's annual deer hunt. But all is not as it should be. His father discovers a poacher on the land, a 640-acre ranch in Northern California, and shows him to the boy through the scope of his rifle. With this simple gesture, tragedy erupts, shattering lives irrevocably.Set over the course of one hot and hellish weekend, Goat Mountain is the story of a family struggling to contend with a terrible crime and its repercussions. David Vann creates a haunting and provocative novel that explores our most primal urges and beliefs, the bonds of blood and religion that define and secure us, and the consequences of our actions - what we owe for what we've done.

Klappentext

PRAISE FOR DAVID VANN

'The most powerful, and pure, piece of writing I have read for a very long time.' Ross Raisin on Legend of a Suicide

'For the imagery alone and for the sentences, the book would be a treasure.' Colm Toibin on Legend of a Suicide

'A novel of fine artistry and stark emotional truth - full of our darkest currents and faintest sounds' The Times on Caribou Island

'Vann's gift - his quest, almost - is a willingness to explore the unimaginable, the unthinkable, on the page. He is the real thing ... I haven't read a novel as rough and shocking or, importantly, as wise and warm as this one in a long time.' Julie Myerson, Observer on Dirt

'Vann is a brave writer, daring to write about and depict things that most other authors would baulk at, but that's what makes him so good - that unflinching eye for the darkness you could potentially find in any of us.' Independent on Sunday on Dirt
