it was amazing
bookshelves: top-ten-fiction-favorites

Proulx is a master at capturing the bittersweet background that is the New West. There is so much hopelessness, but also so much life. I crave that melancholy, and it leaps off her pages. The final story in this collection, "Brokeback Mountain," becomes a major motion picture this December. Am wicked excited. Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger play two cowboys who fall in love in a time and place where such a love is impossible. The angst ... it's beautiful. If Ang Lee and the boys can capture what Proulx has put on the page, there will be floods of tears come 9 December. eep.
