Pulitzer Prize winning author Annie Proulx is one of the literary greats of her generation. Bestselling novels like The Shipping News and Postcards have been unmatched successes with critics and readers alike. Her latest is Close Range , a collection of award-winning tales of the Western frontier, of desolate expanses of land and the vast spaces between people, of love and loss set against the endless sky. Like The Shipping News (available in re-release to coincide with the new collection), it's sure to make an indelible impression on each of millions of readers. Includes the award-winning stories "The Half-Skinned Steer" and "Brokeback Mountain." Contains six original watercolors by William Matthews.
- Pulitzer Prize
This marvelous collection proves that Proulx's Pulitzer Prize for The Shipping News was no one-shot deal. Set in Wyoming, the 11 stories "feature down-on-their-luck ranchers, cowboys, and working men who watch helplessly as the modern world leaves them behind."
