This was my first Annie Proulx experience, and I was definitely impressed. I want to say that she has a great talent of mixing the sacred and the profane in an endearing way, at least in this book. And really, she leaves the assignment of "sacred" or "profane" to you. Do you pick the 300-pound ex-con entrepreneur enamored of trashy horror flicks, the unabashed gossip queen and poisonous arachnid enthusiast, or the cleanly Dutch "mill monkey" oil magnate? Characters are by far this book's strength, and they keep the pages turning.
