the fact of the matter is this: annie proulx is amazing. with the exception of only a few folks, there is basically no one else writing today who can spin a yarn AND turn a sentence like she can. Bad Dirt is, okay, maybe the weakest of the three books of the wyoming stories, but taken as a trilogy the collected stories are so much more than the sum of their parts. and "what kind of furniture would jesus pick?," which is collected here, is really one of the standouts (including "Brokeback Mountain" from Close Range and "Them Old Cowboy Songs" from Fine Just the Way it Is)--just astonishing, terrific stuff.
