Review - Bright Air Black by David Van


"Bright Air Black is like a virus. It has infected me. I dream the world of this book, I feel it under my skin and in my blood. David Vann has created a Medea that slips easily away from tired cliches of powerful women to someone that is visceral and pulsing with strange life. Prose sharp and sure as a knife cuts Medea out of these pages and flings her into the world.  Vann's Medea feels inevitable and inescapable.  If you have not read David Vann's books then race out and do it now.  I doubt he has written a faltering word. If you are a brave reader, unafraid of the dark places in your own soul, start your journey here with Bright Air Black." - Krissy
