Bright Air Black reuires and rewards rapt attention Like every other Vann novel the writing is a uniue mix of poetry and viscera There is really no one else who writes like this There is no one else who could have so deeply imagined Medea murdering her brother on the deck of Jason s ship as she flees with Jason from her father s wrath The moment where she cuts her brother s throat which she does without hesitation but while looking into his eyes loving him is moving and also very disturbing Chapters later she scrapes her brother s remains from where they have congealed on the deck and Vann s meticulous care in describing this scene would be remarkable all on its own but these scenes and their remarkableness just keep coming one following another I don t think the style is similar but in its revivification of an ancient and familiar story it reminds me of The Gospel According to Jesus Christ by Saramago November Road: A Novel humanity Friend Fling Forever? her Bronze Age roots and position in Greek society Harleuin Medical Romance March 2019 Box Set 1 of 2 her love affair with Jason and The Widow Next Door: The most chilling of new crime thriller books that you will read in 2018 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 tol.
