JOHN DARNIELLE: WOLF IN WHITE VAN

SYDNEY WRITERS’ FESTIVAL PRESENTS

JOHN DARNIELLE: WOLF IN WHITE VAN

 

The Mountain Goats’ front man John Darnielle is considered one of the greatest living songwriters and ‘America’s best non-hip-hop lyricist’ (The New Yorker).

John’s debut novel Wolf in White Van has catapulted him into the literary world and he joins Sydney Writers’ Festival to speak about his new book and work as a whole. Longlisted for the National Book Award, Wolf in White Van is both audacious and gripping, a marvel of storytelling brio and genuine literary delicacy. It is the story of Sean Phillips, isolated by a disfiguring injury since the age of seventeen, crafting imaginary worlds for strangers to play in. From his small apartment in southern California, he orchestrates fantastic adventures where possibilities, both dark and bright, open the boundaries between the real and the imagined. Sean guides players from around the world through his intricately imagined terrain, which they navigate and explore, seeking sanctuary in a ravaged, savage future America.

‘THIS IS SIMPLY A MAGNIFICENT NOVEL, WEIRD AND DARK AND WONDERFUL, ADVENTUROUS AND SPELLBINDING IN THE WAY OF ANY GREAT PIECE OF LITERARY ART’ NPR

John Darnielle is a writer, composer, guitarist, and vocalist for the band the Mountain Goats; he is widely considered one of the best lyricists of his generation.
