Close Range: Brokeback Mountain and Other Stories (Paperback)Annie Proulx (author)
- In stock
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.
