The Shipping News / E. Annie Proulx

"The Shipping News..As that rare creation, a lyric page turner." —Stephen Jones, Chicago Tribune

t thirty-six, Quoyle, a third-rate newspaperman, is wrenched violently out of his workaday life when his two-timing wife meets her just desserts. He retreats with his two daughters to his ancestral home on the starkly beautiful Newfoundland coast, where a rich cast of local characters all play a part in Quoyle’s struggle to reclaim his life. As three generations of his family cobble up new lives, Quoyle confronts his private demons—and the unpredictable forces of nature and society—and begins to see the possibility of love without pain or misery.

A vigorous, darkly comic, and at times magical portrait of the contemporary American family, The Shipping News shows why E. Annie Proulx is recognized as one of the most gifted and original writers in America today.

"The writing is charged with sardonic wit—alive, funny, a little threatening; packed with brilliantly original images...and, now and then, a sentence that simply takes your breath away." —Bruce Allen, USA Today

"E. Annie Proulx’s stunning, big-hearted The Shipping News thaws the frozen lives of its characters and warms readers."

—Roz Spafford, San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle
