Goat Mountain

Editorial reviews

Goat Mountain

It would be flip, but not wholly untrue, to call Goat Mountain an existentialist-vitalist work of redneck horror.

“Goat Mountain,” his third Sophoclean novel, is muscular, existential, barbaric and dense with allegory.

Vann’s brutally vivid prose creates a chilling, visceral, and haunting story that burrows its way under a reader’s skin and leaves a permanent impression.
