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.Hide synopsis

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 !
