I just started Legend of a Suicide by David Vann and I’m almost done. (One short story left). David Vann wrote these short stories in response to his father’s suicide. I have to say: I highly recommend this to fans of short stories in general, and fans of literary short stories specifically. I will warn you that there are some graphic scenes, though I won’t give any spoilers as to the nature of that content. If graphic descriptions of self-violence disturb you, though, then you might want to pass on this. Otherwise, check up on some of the reviews and give it a go. It isn’t life changing, but it is definitely a good read.
