Description-
  • From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Shipping News comes one of the most celebrated short story collections of our time. Winner of the New Yorker fiction award, Close Range was named a best book of the year by newspapers across the nation. Annie Proulx's masterful language and fierce love of Wyoming shape these breathtaking tales of loneliness, quick violence, and the wrong kinds of love.

About the Author-
  • Annie Proulx is the acclaimed author of The Shipping News, That Old Ace in the Hole, Postcards, Accordion Crimes, Close Range (which is available as a Sound Library® audiobook), and Heart Strings. She has won the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and the PEN/Faulkner Award. She lives in Wyoming and Newfoundland.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Annie Proulx shapes a story like Andrew Wyeth paints a picture: simple, clear, realistic, and stunning in its revelation. And William Dufris brings Proulx's stories to the ear with the same elegant ease, layering fine washes of tonal inflection over strong individuals and the unyielding landscape of Wyoming. Dufris misses none of the stories' flatness or emotionality, lending dignity and insight to dysfunction, love, and desperation. The relentless battering of the wind, the mysterious allure of a pair of spurs, the shame of forbidden lust come together in sometimes breathtaking blends of sound and silence. Unfortunately, the audiobook's editors have crowded the stories together, shattering the listener's sense of closure after each one. Still, Dufris's performance places Proulx's characters strongly within a sense of place. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine
