I haven't seen the movie and so I'm not "tainted" by the Hollywood view of this story.
It is very well written, very simple story. The story is simply told in an understated but beautiful manner. There are no graphic details to shock. Even the death of one of the characters is understated.

A short story filled with hard, bitter truth about love and loss. Very well-written. The movie truly did stay true to the short story

I read this because I love Annie Proulx's writing and because a local private school was going to teach it in English class which created a furor that made me curious. It is a beautiful story that spans the life of two men (in about 50 pages!!) I'm 60 and was surprised after reading it to find that I would not want to teach it in a high school English class, nor would I want an adolescent son or daughter to discuss it in a high school English class, not because of the homosexuality but because of the sexuality which is such an integral part of the story. In my opinion, the beauty of fiction is that it can be read and digested privately and there is plenty here to digest long after you finish the book. I highly recommend it.

The narrator for this short audio story was absolutely perfect for this piece. I loved hearing this story again and it was wonderfully done. It did Ms. Proulx proud.
