about

El fascinante calvario que vivió el escritor David Vann en un puerto mexicano, centro del narcotráfico, mientras intentaba rescatar su barco averiado. Estas memorias imprevisibles y despiadadas se remontan a 1997, antes de que Vann triunfara con su primera novela Sukkwand Island. Por aquel entonces, David Vann era un profesor de treintaiún años que se ganaba la vida impartiendo clases de escritura creativa en Stanford y organizando chárters náuticos educativos en su propio barco como una apuesta al futuro. En una travesía el barco se estropeó y quedó anclado ante las costas de Puerto Chiapas, también conocido como Puerto Madero, un lugar dejado de la mano de Dios en la costa oeste mexicana con la frontera guatemalteca, centro del narcotráfico y territorio de prostitutas, policías corruptos y niños con amenazantes ametralladoras. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION In Crocodile, David Vann displays a fresh new voice through this story full of mishaps and disasters that entertain as well as rile up readers. This is the tale of the fascinating torment that writer David Vann experienced in a Mexican port with an active drug trade, while trying to revive his broken-down boat. These unpredictable and brutal memories date back to 1997, before Vann released his first novel, Sukkwand Island. Back then, Vann was a 31-year-old professor who made his living teaching creative writing classes at Stanford and organizing educational excursions on his own boat as a future venture. On one voyage, the boat was damaged and wound up anchored near the coast of Puerto Chiapas, also known as Puerto Madero, a godforsaken place off the west coast of Mexico near the Guatemalan border—a hotbed of drug trafficking and territory of prostitutes, corrupt police, and children carrying machine guns.
David Vann nació en la isla de Adak, en Alaska, y en la actualidad vive entre San Francisco y Nueva Zelanda. Es autor de Legend of a Suicide (volumen de relatos que incluye la nouvelle Sukkwan Island), Caribou Island (Literatura Random House, 2011), Tierra (Literatura Random House, 2013) y Goat Mountain (Literatura Random House, 2014...
