Reviews

"Vann's third novel is his most visceral yet: a grinding examination of killing, God and the unnamable forces that create a dynasty of violence. . . . This book is as all of Vann's fiction: provocative and unforgiving."--Kirkus Reviews
"[Goat Mountain] may just may be his finest, most contemplative work to date."--Booklist
"[A] deep meditation on death, religion and legacy."--San Jose Mercury News
"[M]asterful plotting."--San Francisco Chronicle
"David Vann is at once the most timely and timeless of writers . . . Goat Mountain is a ravishing example of his mastery. . . . This book will touch you to the depths of our shared, flawed humanity."--Robert Olen Butler, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain
"Meet David Vann, one the most talented writers in the American West. Goat Mountain, with all its responsibility and recriminations, is the man at his absolute finest."--Craig Johnson, author of the Walt Longmire Mysteries
"Readers will devour Vann's masterful plotting."--San Francisco Chronicle
"Shocking. . . . The author's descriptions of the northern California landscape--the chaparral, woods, and mountains-are also masterly. . . . This beautifully realized novel is recommended for fans of literary fiction but is not for the faint of heart."--Library Journal (starred review)
"The Story has the power of a bullet fired from a gun."--The Economist
"This book is written on the edge, a story of legacies, cruelty, the mysteries of DNA and blood, rewarding the reader sentence by sentence and scene by scene right to the astonishing and terrifying ending."--Robert Morgan, author of Gap Creek
"Vann has crafted a gripping masterpiece"--Anchorage Daily News
"You've been waiting a long time for a novel that'll capture your attention like this does, which makes Goat Mountain the book to hunt for."--The Clermont Sun
