"Annie Proulx's masterful language and fierce love of Wyoming are evident in this collection of stories about lonliness, quick violence, and wrong kinds of love. These are stories of desperation, hard times, and unlikely elation, set in a landscape both brutal and magnificent. In a unique collaboration that revives the tradition of the Scribner illustrated classics, Proulx has worked with the artist William Matthews, whose watercolors create an eloquent visual dialogue."

(1993). Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Gray-green boards quarterbound in turquoise-colored cloth. The spine is stamped in black. Large octavo. Decorative endpapers. 337pps. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings.

"When Quoyle's two-timing wife meets her just desserts, he retreats with his two daughters to his ancestral home on the starkly beautiful Newfoundland coast, where a rich cast of local characters and family members all play a part in Quoyle's struggle to reclaim his life. As Quoyle confronts his private demons -- and the unpredictable forces of nature and society -- he begins to see the possibility of love without pain or misery. A vigorous, darkly comic, and at times magical portrait of the contemporary North American family, 'The Shipping News' shows why Annie Proulx is recognized as one of the most gifted and original writers in America today."
