Yes, we loved the article in today's Daily News about Adak-born David Vann, whose "Legend of a Suicide" will be featured in an upcoming online chat. If you're a regular 49writers reader, you already know about Vann, who was a guestblogger for us in April 2009. We're thrilled Vann is getting lots of positive attention -- from the New Yorker, no less -- and hopeful he won't get too busy to come back to Alaska, the setting for his next novel.

Score one for the home team!
UPDATE: Our online chat with David Vann will take place Thursday May 6, so get out there, buy the book, and help us prepare some questions for the author.
