From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Shipping News, a collection of short stories inspired by the harsh and unforgiving landscape of Wyoming. If he does not force his attention on it, it might stoke the day, rewarm that old, cold time on the mountain when they owned the world and nothing seemed wrong. Inspired by the brutal and magnificent landscape of Wyoming, this is one of the most celebrated short story collections of our time.

In ‘Brokeback Mountain’, an affair between two cowboys survives everything but the world's violent intolerance, while other stories chart desperation, hard times and unlikely elation.

Annie Proulx invests each with an intelligence and black humour that transforms them into something new and surprising in their exploration of the unbreakable bond between a people and their land. From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Shipping News, Brokeback Mountain confirms Annie Proulx’s status as one of the most powerful and accomplished voices in contemporary American fiction.
