Description
(Winner of the 1993 PEN/Faulkner Award) In Annie Proulx's first novel (which appeared the year before her National Book Award– and Pulitzer Prize–winning The Shipping News), Loyal Blood flees his family's Vermont farm and everything he knows after accidentally killing his girlfriend in 1944. Unable to ever touch another woman without violent spasms, Loyal begins a misspent life of random wandering and employment, sending postcards back to his family (reproduced as chapter headings) over the next four decades, while in Vermont the Bloods and their farm fall into ruin.

"Proulx writes a rich, sensuous prose; she captures the earthy, hard-bitten voices of men and women resigned to travail and documents the passing of an epoch."—Publishers Weekly
