About the Book

Legend of a Suicide: Stories

In Legend of a Suicide, his heartbreaking semi-autobiographical debut story-collection, David Vann relates the story of a young man trying to come to terms with the guilt and pain of his father’s suicide. The wild outback of the author’s native Alaska acts as the ideal backdrop for this collage of six stories --- a novella and five shorts --- and mirrors the author’s own psychological wilderness.
