In fabulous poetic prose Bright Air Black brings us aboard the send Argo for its epic go back trip around the Black Sea from Persia’s Colchis – as Medea flees her domestic and father with Jason, the Argonauts, and the Golden Fleece. Vann’s reimagining of this historical story bargains an exhilarating, realist replacement to the long-held notions of Medea as monster or sorceress. We witness with dramatic urgency Medea’s humanity, her Bronze Age roots and place in Greek society, her love affair with Jason, and her tragic loss of life.

Atmospheric and spellbinding, Bright Air Black is an essential, clean and provocative tackle certainly one of our earliest texts and the main intimate and corporeal model of Medea’s tale ever told.
