On the day of its release, Lars Horn’s VOICE OF THE FISH was lauded by The New York Times. Reviewer Corinne Manning raves: “Lars Horn, the author of the rapturous lyric essay VOICE OF THE FISH, muses of these creatures that are older than humans, older even than some cities…Horn wants ‘language and narrative to carry more physicality.’ VOICE OF THE FISH meets this desire with a narrative that swells and recedes, with intimate depictions of the writer’s life…In VOICE OF THE FISH—this baptismal, overflowing narrative that reveals the limitlessness of being — Horn’s clear choice is life and light.” Horn also sat down with Max Ruthless of Foggy Pine Books in Boone, North Carolina for a Q&A for the American Booksellers Association’s “Indies Introduce” segment. Ruthless tells Horn: “This collection of essays is so beautifully written that it made my soul ache. The lyrical style makes every word feel individually crafted and weighted with emotion.” Graywolf Press published the book on June 7, 2022.
