Golden Proulx

by mattlstyles on Jun 7, 2010

I think my favorite book is The Shipping News. These stories are very different and live up to the genius of Annie Proulx in every way. After seeing Brokeback Mountain I wanted to read the original story and was happy to read her other Wyoming stories as well. I think Brokekeback Mountain, the film is great but it doesn't capture a certain eccentricity and feeling for the bizarre that these stories do. Her stories and characters are earthy yet fantastical while the film, though real,.was more pretty and picturesque. Proulx is a brilliant writer. I love her quirky and very real characters. I highly recommend reading these stories if you liked the film version of Brokeback.
