“The world of the aquarium becomes a microcosm of a young girl's longings - some she can name, some she cannot - as her splintered family makes jagged efforts to reform itself. How kinship is expressed, both in the fish world and within 12-year-old Caitlin's difficult family, is at the heart of Vann's piercing and ultimately redemptive novel -- one that remains vivid long after the last page.”
— Sheryl Cotleur, Copperfield's Books, Sebastopol, CA

An Indie Next Pick for March

An Amazon Editors' Best Book of the Month

"Gripping, painful, but ultimately hopeful, Aquarium is a coming-of-age story that explores the limits of love and forgiveness. Vann submerges you so deeply in Caitlin's world, you'll be gasping for breath when you finally surface. A."--Entertainment Weekly

"A novel, but it's also an art object. Scattered throughout its glossy pages are beautiful photographs of rare fish; it is as much a pleasure to see and hold as it is to read...Vann's provocative prose is filled with a sense of wonder and beauty, even when the lives he describes are tragic."--Los Angeles Times

From internationally bestselling New York Times notable author, David Vann, a novel that takes us into the heart of a brave young girl whose longing for love and capacity for forgiveness transforms the damaged people around her. Relentless and heartbreaking, primal and redemptive, and produced in a beautiful four color illustrated edition, Aquarium is a transporting story from one of the best American writers of our time.
