Bad dirt, Wyoming stories 2

Creator: Annie Proulx | Fiction - 2004

Florida Rental THE THREE BlDSTRUP BROTHERS, TUG, BOBBY, AND June, entered the Florida ...

Publisher: Scribner Book Company

About this book
The stories in Annie Proulx's new collection are peopled by characters who struggle with circumstances beyond their control in a kind of rural noir half-light. Trouble comes at them from unexpected angles, and they will themselves through it, hardheaded and resourceful. Bound by the land and by custom, they inhabit worlds that are often isolated, dangerous, and in Proulx's bold prose, stunningly vivid. In "What Kind of Furniture Would Jesus Pick?" rancher Gilbert Wolfscale, alienated from his sons, bewildered by his criminal ex-wife, gets shoved down his throat the fact that the old-style ranch life has gone. Several stories concern the eccentric denizens of Elk Tooth, a tiny hamlet where life revolves around three bars. Elk Toothers enter beard-growing contests, scrape together a living hauling hay, catch poachers in unorthodox ways. "Man Crawling out of Trees" is about urban newcomers from the east and their discovery, too late, that one of them has violated the deepest ethics of the place. Above all, these stories are about the compelling lives of rapidly disappearing rural Americans. Through Proulx's knowledge of the history of Wyoming and the west, her interest in landscape and place, and her sympathy for the sheer will it takes to survive, we see the seared heart of the tough people who live in the emptiest state. Proulx, winner of the Pulitzer, the National Book Award, and many other prizes, has written a collection of spectacularly satisfying stories.

    Guilty pleasure doesn't get any better

    I am a bit of a book snob. I don't read a lot of chick lit. But it has been a cold, rainy spring in Chicago, and it's Memorial Day weekend, and I am a sucker for anything with Summer in the title.It turns out this is a well-plotted, engrossing story with appealing characters, the perfect escape literature to usher in unofficial summer. The formula of a few characters with various hang-ups, a relaxing resort location, and sparks flying is executed quite deftly by Mary Kay Andrews. We have Ellis, the control freak, newly downsized from her bank job in Philadelphia; Julia the aging model, still gorgeous, involved in a long-term relationship with a boring guy; and Dorie who has always been the man magnet, whose marriage is tangled up in a number of very thorny problems. Then we have Maryn, on the run from a very thorny marriage of her own. The first three have rented a house on the beach in Nags Head, NC, Maryn needs a place to disappear until she can sort things out,... 5/5 Rushmore (CHICAGO, IL United States) - See all my reviews, May 30, 2011

    I Wanted To Like It

    0 1/5 Kay (Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Summer Rental: A Novel (Hardcover) I took this book on my beach vacation with high hopes. What a disappointment! The book is about mid-30ish women who overuse the word "totally" in the dialogue (do women this age really talk like 16-year olds?) I also noticed that the 'garage guy's' van started out tan with a red surfboard on top and a couple chapters later morphed into his 'red' van. This is just carelessness on the part of the author. Also, another character's father had a stroke and was later said to have had cancer. Didn't she pay attention as she wrote? The story itself was so ordinary. She interjects sex liberally I think as a means of sustaining interest, but it didn't have that effect. Just all in all a boring book. The jacket said I wouldn't want it to end. Not true. I wish I had packed another book. I'm not that picky and rarely give a book a bad review, but this one was pretty bad, "totally!" 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 7, 2011

    This book is a joke.

    0 1/5 Catherine Middleton - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Summer Rental: A Novel (Hardcover) This book is incredibly poorly written and slow moving. The characters are poorly developed, unbelievable, and just miserable. If you're looking for that easy summer beach read, keep going. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 6, 2011
