Description
(Named a Notable Book of 2008 by the New York Times and a Best Book of 2008 by the San Francisco Chronicle, Rocky Mountain News, Louisville Courier-Journal, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Knoxville News Sentinel, and Providence Journal-Bulletin) The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Shipping News returns to the hardscrabble Wyoming of "Brokeback Mountain" with this 2008 collection of nine short stories set in the 19th and 20th centuries. In "A Family Man," an old man unburdens himself of the family secrets that were his father's unwelcome legacy. "Them Old Cowboy Songs" follows the hardships of Archie and Rosie, a young pioneer couple trying to homestead on the wintry expanses of the prairie, and "Testimony of the Donkey" finds Marc and Caitlin, a young international couple struggling with much more modern concerns, confronting uncertainty as their relationship comes to its end. These are stories of desperation and hard times, often marked by an inescapable sadness, set in a landscape both brutal and magnificent.

"Proulx's brilliance is to edge her hard comedy with tremendous tenderness. These are meticulous, wonderfully actualized descriptions of small lives lived in a place that is lonely and unchanging, and heartbreakingly beautiful."—Daily Telegraph (London)
