Waterstones Says

Containing Brokeback Mountain, one of Proulx's most famous short stories, Close Range finds the acclaimed author spinning characteristically compassionate and insightful Wyoming-set tales.

The inspiration behind Life of Pi director Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain is one of the short stories to be found in this haunting collection of Wyoming tales.

Brokeback Mountain is set in the beautiful, wild landscape of Wyoming where cowboys live as they have done for generations. Hard, lonely lives in unforgiving country. Jack Twist and Ennis del Mar are two ranch hands, glad to have found each other's company where none had been expected. But companionship becomes something else on Brokeback Mountain, something not looked for - an intimacy neither can forget.

Brokeback Mountain was made into an Academy Award-winning film by Ang Lee, and starred Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Bad Dirt: ‘Proulx writes in wonderful stews, everything thrown in together…the stories demand a second reading.' Daily Telegraph 'Her keen eye for idiosyncrasy ensures her continuing reputation as one of the shrewdest chroniclers of contemporary America.' David Robson, Sunday Telegraph Praise for The Shipping News: ‘A very impressive achievement. So funny, so full of delights.’ Guardian ‘As stark and ruggedly beautiful as the storm-battered coast of Newfoundland itself.’ Sunday Telegraph Praise for Accordion Crimes: ‘The detail is breathtaking, her ear for dialogue matchless, her observation unsentimental, her pace infectious. She tackles death, sex and the gruesome with black hilarity and the skills of a born storyteller. Rich and dense, Accordion Crimes is a splendid novel.’ The Times ‘The power and presence of this book cannot be overstated.’ Sunday Express ‘Exhilarating magic, leaves you begging for an encore.’ Daily Telegraph

“Brutal but sparingly beautiful prose”

Annie Proulx is particularly good at two things above all. The first is the unrelenting and all pervasive bleakness of her West, a simmering brutality which extends beyond human violence into the landscape itself. In... More
