Reviews

You gaze entranced as his destiny unfolds...Vann pulls off the most gripping passage of sea-catastrophe writing I have read outside Conrad, a chest-tightening, concretely detailed, cold, sickening and cumulatively desperate depiction of life turning murderous. * Spectator *
At once memoir, confession, travel book and thriller, David Vann's A Mile Down is so vivid and intense you will dread to see it end.... The book is a testimony of passion and courage in deadly storms and scarier calms, of a man wrestling with his ghosts and gifts in the very shadow of paradise. -- Robert Morgan, author of Gap Creek and Brave Enemies
Vann brings his undoubted storytelling skill to his own experiences...unflinching honesty...a terrific piece of writing from a brave and talented author. * Big Issue *
An antidote to the usual run of escape-to-the-sun memoirs. * Financial Times *
Rarely has a memoir combined such raw self-exposure with such ultimately consoling insight. * New Statesman *
