|Author:||E Annie Proulx|
From one of the great writers of our time comes a collection of award-winning stories about loneliness, quick violence, and the wrong kinds of love. Her masterful language and vast love of the West are evident in these stunning portraits which have appeared in "The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly" and "Harper's."
Michael Upchurch"The Seattle Times Book Review"Her characters -- stoical, hardheaded, yet willing to be ravaged by the closest available passion whenever the chance presents itself -- crackle and cavort on the page. Served up a full array of life's wayward ecstasies and gut-twisting losses, they resign themselves, in true Proulx fashion, to the damage that loss and ecstasy do....Amen to that, and amen to this book.
