Annie Proulx is unsurpassable in her chosen genre. She is up there with all other contemporary writers of the West such as Cormac MCcarthy, Ken Kesey, Larry Mcmurtry. Her characterisation, description of landscape, sense of history melded with the contemporary West and plot all are credible to the point of absolute engagement even to readers who have never had the luck to visit this country. Her work, though so rooted in this part of the world, is universal.

A fascinating mix of amusing, intriguing and at times sad but always enthralling short stories. A further proof as to how good a writer Annie Proulx is. Can't wait to read another one of her books.

These are exquisite human stories that are written through the language of big landscapes, immersing the reader in humour and compassion. Reading them is like lying on the carpet.

I love Annie Proulx as an author, but none of the stories in this book came close to her Close Range collection.
