Caitlin, douze ans, habite avec sa mère dans un modeste appartement d'une banlieue de Seattle. Afin d'échapper à la solitude et à la grisaille de sa vie quotidienne, chaque jour, après l'école, elle court à l'aquarium pour se plonger dans les profondeurs du monde marin qui la fascine. Là, elle rencontre un vieil homme qui semble partager sa passion pour les poissons et devient peu à peu son confident. Mais la vie de Caitlin bascule le jour où sa mère découvre cette amitié et lui révèle le terrible secret qui les lie toutes deux à cet homme.La prose cristalline de David Vann nous apprend comment le désir d'amour et l'audace de la jeunesse peuvent guérir les blessures du passé. Aquarium est un pur moment de grâce offert par l'un des plus grands écrivains américains actuels. 1. French. Catherine Gautier. http://samples.audible.de/bk/sixt/000627/bk_sixt_000627_sample.mp3.

'A writer to read and reread.”-The Economist Following the success of Aquarium which was a New York Times Editor's Choice and garnered numerous rave reviews, David Vann transports us to 13th century B.C. to give a nuanced and electric portrait of the life of one of ancient mythology's most fascinating and notorious women, Medea. In brilliant poetic prose Bright Air Black brings us aboard the ship Argo for its epic return journey across the Black Sea from Persia's Colchis-where Medea flees her home and father with Jason, the Argonauts, and the Golden Fleece. Vann's reimagining of this ancient tale offers a thrilling, realist alternative to the long held notions of Medea as monster or sorceress. We witness with dramatic urgency Medea's humanity, her Bronze Age roots and position in Greek society, her love affair with Jason, and her tragic demise. Atmospheric and spellbinding, Bright Air Black is an indispensable, fresh and provocative take on one of our earliest texts and the most intimate and corporal version of Medea's story ever told.

'Like Melville, Faulkner, and McCarthy, Vann is already one of the great ones of American literature.'-ABC(Spain) 'Vann's prose is as pure as a gulp of water from an Alaskan stream.”-Financial Times David Vann's dazzling debut Legend of a Suicide was reviewed in over a 150 major global publications, won 11 prizes worldwide, was on 40 'best books of the year” lists, and established its author as a literary master. Since then, Vann has delivered an exceptional body of work, receiving, among others, best foreign novel in France and Spain (France's Prix Medicis Etranger, Spain's Premi Llibreter), a California Book Award, and the mid-career St. Francis College Literary Prize. Aquarium, his implosive new book and first to be published by Grove, will take Vann to a wider audience than ever before. Twelve year old Caitlin lives alone with her mother-a docker at the local container port-in subsidized housing next to an airport in Seattle. Each day, while she waits to be picked up after school, Caitlin visits the local aquarium to study the fish. Gazing at the creatures within the watery depths, Caitlin accesses a shimmering universe beyond her own. When she befriends an old man at the tanks one day, who seems as enamored of the fish as she, Caitlin cracks open a dark family secret and propels her once-blissful relationship with her mother toward a precipice of terrifying consequence. In crystalline, chiseled yet graceful prose, Aquarium takes us into the heart of a brave young girl whose longing for love and capacity for forgiveness transforms the damaged people around her. Relentless and heartbreaking, primal and redemptive, Aquarium is a transporting story from one of the best American writers of our time.

Ein Roman voll Staunen und Schönheit Die zwölfjährige Caitlin lebt allein mit ihrer Mutter in einem Vorort von Seattle. Jeden Tag geht sie nach der Schule ins öffentliche Aquarium und wartet dort, bis ihre Mutter sie abends nach der Arbeit abholt. Sie ist fasziniert von den stummen, bunten Wesen hinter dem Glas und geht ganz in der rätselhaften Unterwasserwelt auf. Eines Tages trifft sie dort einen älteren Mann, der die Fische ebenso zu lieben scheint wie sie selbst. Sie freundet sich mit ihm an – und öffnet damit nichtsahnend die Tür zur Vergangenheit ihrer Mutter. Eine Tür, die diese verzweifelt wieder zu schließen versucht, und sei es mit drastischen Mitteln.
