Halibut on the Moon

Written by David Vann | Narrated by George Newbern
This “deeply moving work will affect all who read it” (Booklist): Jim, struggling with mental illness, moves from Alaska to California to be near his family. And we think Library Journal’s endorsement says it best: “Having been published in 23 languages, won 14 prizes, and appeared on 83 Best Books of the Year lists in a dozen countries, Vann’s the man to watch. Always a personal favorite.”

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Middle-aged and deeply depressed, Jim arrives in California from Alaska and surrenders himself to the care of his brother Gary, who intends to watch over him. Swinging unpredictably from manic highs to extreme lows, Jim wanders ghost-like through the remains of his old life attempting to find meaning in his tattered relationships with family and friends. As sessions with his therapist become increasingly combative and his connections to others seem ever more tenuous, Jim is propelled forward by his thoughts, which have the potential to lead him, despairingly, to his end.

Halibut on the Moon is a searing exploration of a man held captive by the dark logic of depression and struggling mightily to wrench himself free. In vivid and haunting prose, Vann offers us an aching portrait of a mind in peril, searching desperately for some hope of redemption.
