'The Shipping News' is one of five classic Fourth Estate books to be released as numbered, collectable editions to mark the 25th anniversary. The books will be beautifully produced hardbacks, limited to 2000 copies each, with jackets designed by some of the finest artists at work today. Quoyle is a hapless, hopeless hack journalist living and working in New York. When his no-good wife is killed in a spectacular road accident, Quoyle heads for the land of his forefathers -- the remotest corner of far-flung Newfoundland. With 'the aunt' and his delinquent daughters -- Bunny and Sunshine -- in tow, Quoyle finds himself part of an unfolding, exhilarating Atlantic drama. 'The Shipping News' is an irresistible comedy of human life and possibility.

This is a darkly comic book....I used to get it from the library to listen to every year - now I've bought my own !
I listened to it about a week ago and I find it absolutely hilarous every time - I have to stop my work at the bench ( I'm a jeweller) as I am laughing so hard tears pour down my face - I LOVE it ! Paul Hecht is the most wonderful actor - he brings all these fantastic characters to life - this audio book is definitely worth buying !
