David Grann: Diving Into History, the Trials of a Sea Voyage, and Sailing the Gulf of Pain
In Conversation with Mitchell Kaplan on The Literary Life
David Grann is my guest on this episode of The Literary Life, and his talk was recorded in front of a live audience at Books and Books in Coral Gables, Florida.
The Wager: A Tale of Shipwreck, Mutiny, and Murder is confirmation yet again of David Grann’s prodigious talent. Like he did in Killers of the Flower Moon and The Lost City of Z, David has taken a story that, while not unknown, is not known enough, and he brings it to life in all its exoticism and savagery.
