Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

From one of the great writers of our time comes a collection of award-winning stories about loneliness, quick violence, and the wrong kinds of love. The pieces have appeared in "The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly" and " Harper's." Full color.


Review:

"A vigorous second collection....Gritty, authoritative stories of loving, losing, and bearing the consequences. Nobody else writes like this, and Proulx has never written better."

Kirkus, 03/01/1999

Review:

"Everything in her work attests to long practice of keen observation, a hoarding of images and facts, and the painstaking perfection of a craft which allows her to address the most pungent and raw subject matter in a style remarkable not just for vigor but for delicacy and finesse....The best [of these stories] carry with them the present and the past of America, enfolded like twins in the womb."

Hilary Mantel, New York Review of Books, 05/11/2000

Book Description: Prentice Hall (a Pearson Education Company), United Kingdom, 1999. Other book format. Book Condition: New. 242 x 162 mm. Brand New Book. Annie Proulx s masterful language and fierce love of Wyoming are evident in this collection of stories about loneliness, quick violence, and wrong kinds of love. In The Mud Below, a rodeo rider s obsession marks the deepening fissures between his family life and self-imposed isolation. In The Half-Skinned Steer, an elderly fool drives west to the ranch he grew up on for his brother s funeral, and dies a mile from home. In Brokeback Mountain, the difficult affair between two cowboys survives everything but the world s violent intolerance. These are stories of desperation, hard times, and unlikely elation, set in a landscape both brutal and magnificent. Enlivened by folk tales, flights of fancy, and details of ranch and rural work, they juxtapose Wyoming s traditional character and attitudes -- confrontation of tough problems, prejudice, persistence in the face of difficulty -- with the more benign values of the new west. Stories in Close Range have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Harper s, and GQ. They have been selected for the O. Henry Stories 1998 and The Best American Short Stories of the Century and have won the National Magazine Award for Fiction. This is work by an author writing at the peak of her craft.
