Wonderful collection of stories, including "Brokeback Mountain." Proulx writes of Wyoming with interesting characters and stories and superb prose.

I just don't enjoy this writer. She is stark, the stories are mostly brutal. I like endings spelled out. Broke Back Mountain was in this collection and it was the best story in the book. I never saw the movie but that story was touching and not sordid at all. It was probably worth it for that one story, and some people might appreciate that style of writing.

This collection of short stories includes "Brokeback Mountain" from which the movie was made. This writing is about as sparse as it gets, resembling, no doubt, the vast plains about which Proulx writes so movingly.
