Caribou Island is a masterpiece Set in the remote bleakness of water soaked small town Alaska this is a tale of desperation failure of man versus nature but also of man so arrogant and self involved so removed from reality that he does not bother to properly prepare for the battle Some hope is gleaned some battles are won but the war seen here is a dark suffocating presence Alaska felt like the end of the world a place of exile Those who couldn t fit anywhere else came here and if they couldn t cling to anything here they just fell off the edge These tiny towns in a great expanse enclaves of despair Whereas most fiction floats atop a watery base of prose Vann s characters and story sit amidst a thick stew of imagery His writing has the density the economy of a short story No event occurs that does not contribute to the underlying momentum or to enhancing our understanding of the characters or their actions Salmon thrashing about on the deck of a boat echo how his characters struggle to survive the travails of their lives One even dreams of himself underwater with the hooked fish The Alaskan environment is as much a character as the characters themselves While it can be a beautiful landscape and that is noted than once it is mostly harsh here offering chill wind rain snow cold the harshness of the venue reflecting the harshness of the characters emotional states The water was no longer turuoise A dark dark blue today with blackness in it a clarity no glacial silt suspended Irene didn t know it could change so completely in even a day A different lake now Another metaphor for itself each new version refuting all previous Vann s language is as unadorned as a block of Hubbard ice reminding me of Cormac McCarthy particularly in his freuent verb free sentence constructions The primary actors in Caribou Island are a late middle aged couple Gary and Irene Gary is impulsive controlling a bully and a coward who cannot ever see himself as being in the wrong He wants to test his mettle by constructing a cabin on the shore of remote Caribou Island Another character thinks about sailing a ship around the world thus conjuring Robert Stone and Outerbridge Reach Gary s wife Irene desperately trying to save her marriage reluctantly agrees to help despite knowing that constructing this cabin is only another in a long history of follies Their daughter Rhoda is a veterinarian s assistant She lives with and expects to marry Jim a dentist who is going through a mid life crisis A sociopathic man user rips through the scenery leaving a trail of destruction and a few minor characters are given lines But their actions serve primarily to highlight the larger issues Looming over all is Irene s memory from age ten when she found her mother hangingWhat effect must that have had on such a young person Vann ought to know His own father took his life when Vann was thirteen Irene carries that memory on her back like Jesus stumbling toward Calvary Given Vann s prior work one must wonder if one or of his characters will find their way to a similar a dark end But there is a route There are reasons challenges revelations lies contemplations Abandonment and isolation are prime here Vann casts a laser light on how people manage to see past each other how they miss chances to connect He looks at how fear whether of failure or of being alone can help cause the very things we most want to avoid Even the sociopath is running from something Vann shows how people can make each other invisible whether consciously or not and do so at their peril and how their externalizing of internal issues and images impacts those around them Are we doomed to repeat the crimes of our parents Of our parents parents Of forebears beyond counting The subject matter may be tough but the journey is incredibly rich the main characters well realized the craft impressive You will find yourself thinking about scenes from this book long after you have moved on to your next read Vann is the real deal and this is top notch literature Climb into your leaky boat brave the icy wind and suall driven waves slapping at the sides of your craft and head over to Caribou Island It is a memorable sojourn And if this is not recognized as one of the best books of 2011 I will eat my copyOther books by David VannLegend of a SuicideGoat Mountain

Dark ity dark dark dark The beautiful Alaskan wilderness was as much a part of this story as its characters a couple in their mid 50s setting about building and arguing over a tiny cabin and about their adult children These people were drawn with outstanding depth and tone and that is true for even sideline characters the four friends and lovers who meander in and out of the tale Aside from Rhoda the gentle hearted daughter and a sweet side character named Carl we see shards of the rotten and the kind in practically every person detailed here This makes the dark story extremely believable and engages the reader tightly The black moods that percolate through from time to time are relieved by the 20 something goofiness of the adult son Mark and his entourage I ve read three of Vann s novels so far and this one is by far the most realistic and with characters that were easy to relate to Auarium featured characters that bordered on cartoonish in my opinion Goat Mountain drug out meandering existentialism over and over He is an incredibly talented if sober writer but for me this particular story was his Goldilocks choice just rightCaribou Island was a difficult book to put down If you cannot handle the dark or cold stay away but if that can entrance you for 300 some pages read it 5 stars
