Like many stories set near the Arctic Circle, David Vann's CARIBOU ISLAND makes broad use of a harsh landscape and climate to surface the most extreme aspects of its characters' souls. A married couple is drawn to Alaska's coastline, intent on building a cabin by hand in the manner of early frontiersmen. Gary's and Irene's choice of an isolated island requires hauling timber over difficult waters, and when intense winter strikes, the conditions put their naturalist fantasy to a grueling test--alongside their relationship.


"[S]wift and beautifully written...." - Kevin Canty 01/23/2011

"The harsh beauty of Alaska is the star turn in Vann's disturbing novel." 02/24/2011
