Free eBook Download of Sukkwan Island

In anticipation of the soon-to-be released Caribou Island, Harper Collins is offering a free eBook download of David Vann's novella "Sukkwan Island".

The novella, originally found nestled between short stories in Vann's Legend of a Suicide, recently won France’s prestigious Prix Medicis award for best foreign novel.. and can be downloaded with an excerpt of Vann's new novel.

For those of you who are long-time followers, you may remember that I reviewed Legend of a Suicide back in April. I was blown away by "Sukkwan Island", and Vann's writing style in general.

You can download your free copy of this novella via amazon, sony, or kobo. And you totally should!


  1. Thanks so much for the heads-up on the free download! Sorry I missed your book giveaway, but glad to be a new member of your Goodreads book club: It's a tad daunting to wander around in, but worth the time...

  2. Your welcome. Don't let TNBBC scare you, the group has a lot of members but it feels more like a small family...
