Ancient History

By Victor LaValle
Ancient History by Victor LaValle digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

A Vintage Shorts “Short Story Month” Selection
 
Horse and Ahab share the kind of contempt and love for one another that only true friends can. Months after graduating high school, Horse is getting married to his longtime girlfriend, Melissa, and moving into her apartment in Manhattan, and Ahab has enlisted in the Marines. They’ve found ways to escape the neighborhood, just not together. 
 
From the extraordinary fiction debut, Slapboxing with Jesus, that launched Victor LaValle to literary stardom—a raw, gritty, and unremittingly truthful look into the lives of two friends who go to say goodbye to each other and their neighborhood on the shores of Rockaway Beach.
 
An ebook short.
